Mark Pace is sorry to pass on the news of the passing of another former dancer from the Australian Ballet, Jodie White-Bivona, on Saturday 21 January at the age of 44, from cancer. She died peacefully with her husband by her side. She was the director, with her husband Boris Bivona, of Ballet Theatre of Queensland for 10 years. On the same evening of her death the company danced her Cinderella at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre - a wonderful tribute to her, full of love, a truly memorable performance.
Aside from the Australian Ballet, Jodie was principal artist with the Wiener Staatsoper Ballet (Vienna State Opera) as well as Balletto del Sud and Teatro Lirico Giuseppe Verdi in Italy.
For anyone wishing to pay their last respects, funeral details are as follows:
Saturday 28 January at 1pm
Our Lady of Victories
1 Roche Avenue, Bowen Hills, QLD, 4006
Children are welcome.
