"Surrounded by family, Carley died earlier this afternoon. She died peacefully and with no pain."
Carley was always an intelligent, friendly presence on Ballet Talk, welcoming new members and answering questions, moderating discussions with wisdom and professionalism. She was a good friend and an avid balletgoer who attended performances of ABT and NYCB almost daily. Her sudden death is a great blow to her family, friends both in real and virtual life and all who knew her. My heart is broken.
