Thanks to Samba for this sad news.

Long-time Miami-based dance critic Laurie Horn has died, after a 15-year struggle with breast cancer. There should be an obituary in the Miami Herald tomorrow.

Funeral services will be in Mimai's Mt. Nebo cemetery at noon today Ms. Horn had requested that donations in her name be made for a dance scholarship at the New World School of the Arts in Miami.

I knew Laurie from my years in Florida. She was a dedicated dance lover and critic, and she put up a valiant fight against this cancer. May she rest in peace.

Oh, so very sad to hear this. I too knew Laurie and her writing from my Florida days. I have great memories of the first years of the Miami City Ballet and how Laurie so ably chronicled them. I think her serious, comprehensive coverage, and the way she showed how vital a role ballet can play in the local culture, was an undeniable part of their success. Fond farewell.
