Dancing to Heaven
My sincere condolences to the family of Desiree Keras (age 16), who passed away as a result of a fall onto a subway rail track in New York City. She died at the hospital.
She was a dancer in the Young Artists Program at the Martha Graham School, a group Big Sister supports tirelessly. Desiree was one of their most dedicated teens. One of the few that her teacher, Big Sister's best friend, never doubted would fulfill her dream to became a dancer. He shared something she wrote last year:
"I am a dancer because dancing allows me to express myself through movement. Dancing shows the world how I truly feel and my feelings can never be hidden behind a lie when I dance."
He then added the following: "Dance was her passion. May she continue to dance in heaven."
