Choreographer Carol Bartlett (1945-2012), Peabody Dance artistic director, passed away at her home on Dec. 15 while in hospice care. Born in England, she studied there and in Switzerland before moving to California, where she taught and founded her own company. Since 1988, she was the backbone and inspirational leader of the Peabody Preparatory's Dance Department, planning, teaching, and serving as chief choreographer for its productions.

A restaging of Concerto, choreographed by Carol Bartlett in 2009 to Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 6;
The premiere of a work choreographed by Preparatory faculty member Meredith Rainey to Arvo Pärt's Spiegel im Spiegel; and
Live and video excerpts of Carol Bartlett's class work and choreography.
