Yesterday, the dance community was heartbroken to learn that Jaime Guttenberg and Cara Loughran, both 14-year-old dancers, were among the 17 people killed on Valentine's Day in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.
Jaime trained at Dance Theatre in Coconut Creek, FL and was a member of the studio's DTX competition team. Dance Theatre owner Michelle McGrath Gerlick said this on Facebook:
Cara Loughran studied at the Drake School of Irish Dance in Coral Springs, FL. In a statement on Facebook, the school said:
Our hearts go out to everyone who loves Cara and Jaime, and to everyone touched by the shooting in Parkland.
