So many people have seemed to commit suicide this year in the news, but unfortunately for our NYCB/SAB family, it has just hit close to home. I think I can easily say for anyone that knew Peter Frame, we all felt how enormously big his heart was. He cared so much about each and every dancer that went through the school, and continued to provide the same concern and love every time you crossed paths with him after you entered the company. He was just one of those people who upon passing in the street or at the school immediately made you feel safe, your heart softened and opened up, and you accepted his big hugs and interest in your life with absolute pleasure. I mean just seeing him and having a casual quick conversation could change the mood of your day for the better. His passing has made me think a lot of Albert Evans, they were both people who made you feel special on a daily basis, and they are tragically both gone too soon. It was an honor to know Peter and be his friend, and I will always remember how his kind and generous spirit lifted us all up everyday, and hopefully we can all continue to pay it forward and lift each other up in his remembrance. What an example of how we should brighten and support each other’s lives. It is incredibly tragic that his life ended in this way, and I’m just so sad he was struggling, and that we all had no idea. If you are struggling please reach out and don’t suffer alone. 1-800-273-8255 24/7 Suicide Hotline #rip #peterframe #principaldancer #gentlesoul
