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.
