In Memory Of

susan s. friendlander

In 2005, Sue with her husband Bill, saw their first Kaplan New Works at the former Cincinnati Ballet studios on Central Parkway. It was the first time they experienced professional dancers performing in such a raw and intimate setting. They left feeling inspired which sparked a long-time passion for Cincinnati Ballet.

Sue and Bill’s support of the organization spanned more than 30 years. They were a part of significant projects such as establishing an endowment for the Artistic Director position and annually contributing to live music. Bill passed away in 2014 and Sue continued their commitment to supporting the arts in Cincinnati. She cared deeply for Cincinnati Ballet and named the Artistic Suite in the new Cincinnati Ballet Margaret and Michael Valentine Center for Dance.
