Honouring Sallie Lyons
We are deeply saddened to share with you the news of Sallie Lyons’ passing on February 15th.
Sallie was a remarkable woman who led a rich life in the arts. We are grateful for the gift of Sallie’s presence in the dance and theatre community and for her benevolent work over many years on the Moonhorse board. We sincerely appreciate all that she shared with us- her enthusiastic support and her thoughtful offerings. Gentle, strong, wise and luminous- we adored Sallie and will dearly miss her.
Here is an image of Sallie dancing at Older & Reckless 2017 in Peter Chin's Tell Everyone - her movements were full of grace and gravity, her mind and body fully invested, her depth and commitment ever present, her quiet artistry always at play.
