as the Graham company is coming back from their long legal battles, and they could use every veteran they can get to revive that repertory.

For the curious, there are good filmed records of Ross' dancing. The commercially available film of Graham's "Night Journey" shows more than a fine partner, but a compelling dancer in a masterful dance. If you've never watched it, it's a great work of the 20th century.

That is a terrific video, and it definitely shows a dancer capable of far more than supporting Martha and swooshing his cape.

He also gave an interesting interview to Robert Tracy for the latter's book on Graham.
