  1. Deeply saddened when I heard the shocking news. So very sorry that she passed away. Deepest condolences to her family and friends, and fans Years ago, I met Ann Reinking once. Took place at a dance center. She was so sweet and kind. I brave willingly asked her if she happened to be Ann Reinking. She simply responded with a YES nod, and wink and smile. So, then I complimented her wonderful movies, which I truly enjoyed, and talented performances, both as a dancer and actress. “Thank you”, Annie replied, flattered, with another sweet and kind smile. - A memorable moment to fondly remember Ann Reinking shall always be fondly remembered as a wonderful person, and talented dancer and actress, whose movies again I truly enjoyed “Annie” and “All That Jazz” were my most favorites of her movies among many You shall be missed - RIP, and keep in dancing, Annie
  2. As a former dance student of Willy Burmann's, I'm extremely saddened to learn of his passing. Although it's years ago, approx. early to middle '80s, I still fondly remember him. He was a wonderful dance instructor, I enjoyed his Ballet classes, exploring & experiencing his amazing, unique Ballet techniques, his own creative styles, the BEST in the City. As much as I LOVED to DANCE, and study DANCE in variety, at the time, I was NEVER a Pro-Dancing Girl. With that said, it was an Honor to work w/ The Maestro. Prior to when The Maestro STEPPED in to join STEPS. However, as I STEPPED into STEPS as well, I could NOT return to his Ballet classes, at the time, as they were ALL on an Advanced Level. I can see tho, when observing his Ballet classes, and in the halls, how very POPULAR, and so well LOVED he was, and very much NEEDED among the many Advanced & Pro Dancing Students, and STEPS Staff Team .. RIP, Willy, and keep on DANCING. YOU shall be MISSED. Those Were Certainly The Days. Tho, the MEMORIES of YOU, from a long time ago, shall FOREVER REMAIN
