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.
