I am not really sure where to post this and I am not able to find the otibuary as of yet, however...

Anatole Grigoriev, 57, former dancer of the Kirov Ballet, teacher of boys at White Lodge, Royal Ballet for many years, passed away on March 1, 2006. Anatole had been ill for three years with cancer. He put up a brave fight and left this world with dignity, love and the respect of his students, collegues, family and friends. There is no way to say goodbye. May you find peace Anatole.

I was so sad to learn that Mr. Anatole (Tolya) Grigoriev passed away last week.

I attended a wonderful concert in his honour at the White Lodge organized by his former pupils and was very impressed by the performance. One could definitely see the highest standards of the Russian ballet school, maintained by Anatoly, expressed in their dance.

Anatoly will always be warmly remembered as a vibrant, sincere and kind person passionate about his teaching. His work lives in his pupils and their pupils.

May your soul rest in peace, Anatole.
