British dancer Louise Clarke has died at the age of 63.
Clarke, one of the founding members of dance troupe Pan's People, which featured on U.K. music TV show Top of the Pops, suffered from heart failure and passed away in hospital in Ipswich, England on Saturday (25Aug12), according to the Bbc.
Pan's People first appeared on Top of the Pops in 1968 and spent eight years as the programme's resident dancers.
Clarke's publicist, Philip Day, describes the dancer as "a lovely, lovely lady, she was a real darling", adding, "Of all the clients I have had the good fortune to represent during all of those years, they (Pan's People) were perhaps the most fun to work with, certainly the easiest to work with, were loyal to a fault and the very best at what they did."
Clarke is the second member of the group to pass away after Flick Colby's death in May, 2011.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
