Patricia Beatty, Co-Founder of Toronto Dance Theatre, Remembered as a ‘Warrior Queen’

She’s best known as co-founder of Toronto Dance Theatre, along with David Earle and Peter Randazzo. Her death at age 84 marked decades of choreography, teaching and writing that inspired thousands of young dancers.
