Southold Remembers Scott Osthimer
The Southold family mourns the loss of Scott Osthimer on June 3, 2019. Scott was a dedicated Southold Dance Theater performer, supporter and board member for many years. His last performance with Southold was the role of Von Rothbart in Swan Lake. He is remembered as a kind soul who enjoyed working with the Southold dancers and they with him.
Our condolences go to Scott’s family. May you find comfort knowing that he was loved and respected by the Southold family.

Several companies were very interested in Paul. He was offered the following opportunities: a Studio Company contract with Sarasota Ballet, a Studio Company contract with Alberta Ballet (Canada), a full tuition scholarship trainee position with the San Francisco Ballet, Boston Ballet, Tulsa Ballet, Colorado Ballet, Ballet West and Orlando Ballet.
