RIP Alex Espinal-Rodriguez, Dancer

I got news this morning that New York City area dancer Alexander Espinal-Rodriquez passed away. Alex was a guest with Exit 12 Dance Company for a show we did in Connecticut last June 2010, and though I didn't know him well besides that weekend away, it's very clear he was a talented young dancer and very well-liked in the NYC dance community.

It's sad to see any young life taken - another reminder to live every day to the fullest. Another reason to appreciate every single day I get to wake up and dance.

If you knew him, there is a Facebook page set up in his honor, here.

RIP Alex.
