It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of Professor Emeritus Peggy Willis-Aarnio’s passing on Saturday, January 9th, 2016.

She was a very special person with a sharp mind and a heart of gold. Her contributions to the Art of Ballet will never be forgotten.

There are some we meet in passing,
And forget as soon as they go.
There are some we remember with pleasure,
And feel honoured and privileged to know.
You were that kind of person
Who leaves beautiful memories behind,
And there will be many days
Which will bring fond memories to mind.

You have gone no further from us than to God,
And God is very near.

We miss you, Mrs. Aarnio!

Hi, I'm Mary Fernandez! I'm a ballet teacher and mother of two rambunctious boys. As if my three boys (hubby included) didn't keep me busy enough, I also enjoy getting back into dancing shape and studying the Teaching Method of Classical Dance. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, follow me, and I'll tell you about it!

Thank you!
