Dorothy's passion for dancing was well known. She touched the lives of many children, teens, and adults during her long dance career. She remained very close to many of her students, and continued to dance with them in their studios well into her 90's.
Dorothy loved life which she celebrated with family and friends, and she traveled often with her husband, Hans.
