In loving memory of
John “Duje Radovnikovic” Radovnik

The State Ballet of Rhode Island has created a John Radovnik Memorial Fund Scholarship in honor of Herci Marsden’s late husband, who was The State Ballet’s sound director for thirty years.

The fund will honor dancing members of The State Ballet of Rhode Island who best represent professionalism, determination and generosity towards our ballet community.

If you would like to contribute to this fund, your support will not only allow SBRI to give needed ballet scholarships to wonderful, special dancers, but will also give us the chance to honor John Radovnik’s memory.
