Last week the dance community was heartbroken to learn that Jaime Guttenberg, a 14-year-old dancer, was among the 17 people killed on Valentine’s Day in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Jaime trained at Dance Theatre in Coconut Creek, FL and was a member of the studio’s DTX competition team. Dance Theatre owner Michelle McGrath Gerlick said this on Facebook:
You can join dancers across the nation in showing support for Jaime’s family, her friends, and her dance community by wearing orange ribbons at competitions, in class, or at rehearsal this weekend. Our hearts go out to everyone who loves Jaime, and to everyone touched by the shooting in Parkland.
