In Memory of Carley Broder
Gifts in Carley's memory will support American Ballet Theatre's Project Plié initiative. The Broder family would be honored by any donations made to ABT in her memory:
"Our dear Carley died on February 25, 2014, from lung disease. A ballet devotee, she had a keen eye for perfection, and no patience for the artificial. Carley adored all things related to ballet and dance, and was instrumental in managing Ballet Alert, an international discussion forum. A kind and generous woman, Carley mentored up and coming dancers who were new to New York. She would be so pleased to have students benefit from ABT's Project Plié initiative. Her family thanks you for your gift in her memory."
In September 2013, American Ballet Theatre announced the formation of Project Plié, a comprehensive initiative to increase racial and ethnic representation in ballet and diversify America’s ballet companies. Project Plié seeks to combine training and support of ballet students from communities previously underrepresented in American ballet companies with the creation of a nationwide network of partner professional ballet companies who are committed to diversity. In addition, Project Plié will include a new partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to introduce participants to ballet and identify children for future training.
