Honoring Christopher Morrison


Photographer Tom Brazil

Garth Fagan Dance lost a beloved dancer, teacher and friend this past January. After months of battling pancreatic cancer the news of Chris Morrison's passing heavily impacted the Rochester community. Born and raised in Jamaica, Chris started his dance training at the age 9 and pursued his passion for dance for over 25 years. Chris joined Garth Fagan Dance in 1990 where he performed as a principal dancer for 15 years before retiring in 2005. Chris will always be remembered for his positive energy and his love of dance.
