The ballet company’s artistic director, Gen Horiuchi, issued a statement Wednesday on Stroik, who joined the company in September 2017.
“She was a wonderful dancer and a beautiful person,” Horiuchi said. “We extend our condolences to her family. We are very sad over the loss of this talented and beautiful spirit.”
Stroik had performed in company productions of “The Nutcracker,” “Giselle,” “Cinderella” and others.
An autopsy on the ballerina was scheduled for Thursday.
