Ballet Dancer Lost in Sept 11 Tragedy: Sonia Puopolo

3 posts in this topic

Given the huge losses of life in Tuesday's tragedy, it is not surprising that at least one member of the professional ballet world is among the known casualties:

This from several AP lists, published Sept. 13, of the known dead from the American Airlines plane that crashed into one of the WTC towers -- " Sonia Morales Puopolo - age 58 - Dover, Massachusetts - retired professional ballet dancer."

Did any of you know Ms Puopolo?

God rest her soul.

Jeannie, I didn't know of her -- the Post ran an obit (it's on the Links forum, but I don't remember which day). She may have danced under the name Sonia Morales.

Thanks, Alexandra. I just saw your link a minute ago...sorry for the repeat. Still, it would be interesting to hear from folks in our group who may have known her.

Since the Post obit mentions her Puerto Rican roots, I'll ask among my San Juan friends. If she danced in Puerto Rico, it most likely would have been in Ballets de San Juan, which was the only professional ballet troupe on the island until the founding of Ballet Concierto ca. 1978.
