Those fans of Miami City Ballet will also recall seeing Laurel dance.

Grace, I have read the book about the twins with my girls! Of course it's been a few years, but I remember it fairly well. What a sad situation for the family members and for those in the dance community that knew this young lady!

It's called <B>Twins On Toes: A Ballet Debut</B> by Joan Anderson<P>A synopsis from Booklist reads<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The School of American Ballet's Spring Workshop performance provides the focus for Anderson's profile of 17-year-old twins Amy and Laurel, whose lives have revolved around ballet for the past 10 years. The text includes quotations from the twins as well as explanations of why they chose this path, how they perfect their art, and what they aspire to achieve. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>It is a terribly heart-wrenching event. For the families left behind, and the friends and co-workers at Ballet West, and other companies. I, frankly, cannot imagine seeing one of the sisters without the other (I have this image in my mind of the two of them huddled stage right, putting shoes on together)...and being close to another set of twins, I just can't get my mind around how she can pick up and continue. In time, I hope Amy can.<P>I guess one of the best memorials to a life well-lived is the number of friends left behind. <p>[This message has been edited by BabsLights (edited January 13, 2001).]
