I just found this today and am heartbroken. I will never forget what Bobbi taught me in ballet and in discipline. I was only able to learn from her for a short time, but it was monumental in my dance life. Thank you, Bobbi! <3

I spent most of my evenings and Saturday mornings in my teens and then in my early twenties when home from college at The Ballet Studio. Few things in life have compared to the joy and peace I discovered during that time. I am grateful to have wonderful memories of Bobbi, shared with many students from the studio. Amazed by the devotion she gave to each class and to ballet as a whole – she exemplified classical ballet as it was meant to be. She emphasized pure technique, artistry, and professionalism no matter one’s age or body type or level of ability. Bobbi believed in our best and expected nothing less without saying a word. Her smile lit up a room - kind, gentle, and steadfast. Pachelbel’s Canon will always be a comfort to me as I am reminded of the happiness I felt as it played on a record player at the beginning of almost every class, and Bobbi proudly and gracefully standing in the door frame, admiring her students lined up along the barre preparing for plies. Her warm spirit and her love of ballet will endure in the hearts of her friends, family, and students.

Bobbi and I roomed together in NYC. I learned so much from her about housecleaning, ballet, music, Christian Science. We had lost touch in the last few years. The thought came to me to look her up. So I went on the internet October, 2006 and the first thing that came up was her obituary. I am so sad that I lost touch with her. She was a wonderful person. I am grateful that the lovely qualities she possessed and herbeauty will never die.

wit. I love you . Your cousin, Sue

Bobbi was a wonderful teacher and an inspiration to the many loyal and hard-working students she inspired over the years. We will miss her immensely.

I studied with Miss Bobbi my senior year of high school. After my first year of college I realized I had better get myself back into her studio! She was always welcoming when we returned. Her studio was the sactuary away from school and personal life. After I graduated with my undergraduate degree I set my sights on a grad program in dance. Miss Bobbi pushed me, in every way- to go across the floor faster and farther and she pushed me to broaden my abilities. I doubt I would have reached my goals in life thus far if it hadn't been for Miss Bobbi. I was honored with the stories she told me of her dance experiences, warning me of the pitfalls of teaching dance, and her basic teaching style. I will hold tightly onto the memories I have of her, especially after the beginning ballet classes on Saturday mornings-she talked to me as a peer and gave me teaching advice. I will always long for those Saturday summer morning I used to have with her.

I've known Miss Bobbi all my life. I grew-up in the studio, and started taking Ballet when I was four. I was about to start point, when Miss Bobbi got sick, and when I heard that she had passed away, I was devistated. Miss Bobbi will be remembered in all our hearts forever.

Having just today received the dreadful news of the passing of our beloved ballet teacher, I am stunned to think about the huge change in the lives of her loyal students. Having danced with Bobby for the past 20 years her classes were the part of the day I most looked foreward to. I rarely missed them. Bobby had such integrity, commitment and passion for ballet and each class was instructive but fun. The darkest days would always be lightened by escaping into the movement and the music. Bobby could be strict and unyielding in her rules but she was never unkind or unfair and we respected and loved her.
