Patri was also a key resource & favorite teacher at Newport dance
week. That group sent the following information to those who'd like to
remember him in some special way.

It is with tremendous sadness that The Commonwealth Vintage Dancers
announce the death of our esteemed co-director, Patri J. Pugliese, on
Sunday, February 11, 2007.  To say that he will be sorely missed is an
understatement.  As many of you know, Patri courageously battled
cancer for most of the past year.

For almost 25 years, Patri generously shared his love and knowledge of
historical dance with CVD, as well as the dance and reenacting
communities at large.  His classes have introduced hundreds of people
to the joys of vintage dance. His expectations for excellence have
made us all better dancers than we would have been otherwise.

A memorial service will be held at a later date, and details will be
sent out once they are known.   For those who are local, Barbara will
be at home to receive guests this evening and tomorrow evening from
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Condolences can be sent to Barbara, Antonia and Julia Pugliese at:
