Dolores "Lolly" LaGreca, 72, a former ballerina who later cofounded a real estate company and was active in civic affairs, died Friday, May 30, of pulmonary fibrosis at Pennsylvania Hospital.
Born and raised in North Philadelphia and Logan, Ms. LaGreca thrived on dance.
She was a member of the Pennsylvania Ballet Company's corps de ballet in its inaugural season and then founded a children's ballet company in South Philadelphia and a Pilates studio in Center City. She also taught ballet, jazz dance, and modern dance at studios owned by others across the city.
In 1982, she was cofounder with Joanne Davidow of Midtown Realty Corp. on Rittenhouse Square. In the 1990s, she became an associate broker with Fox & Roach Realtors, now part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
