Here’s A Tribute To Hit-And-Run Victim Polina Kadiyska That Doesn’t Refer To An “Eye-Candy” Side Job


“Polina Kadiyska, a 22-year old student from Bulgaria had been studying ballet at The Rock School for the past three years, when she was struck down and killed by a drunk hit and run driver. … Polina was rushed to Jefferson Hospital, where she was in a coma in the intensive care unit. The Directors of the Rock School and Polina’s loved ones stayed at the hospital until her parents arrived from Bulgaria. A few hours later, Polina passed away. …

The Philadelphia dance community has been deeply struck by this senseless loss. Polina’s fellow students, dancers and friends have collected flowers, cards, and notes of kind words for Polina’s family on the 2nd floor of the school under her photo. A memorial service is planned. Polina’s parents are now hoping to fly her home to Bulgaria. She is expected to be buried there.”
