The grand old lady of Chinese ballet and folk dancing, has passed away.
Born in 1916 in Trinidad Tobago, she studied in London, both classical and modern, before going to China.
Tonight there was a memorial program about her on CCTV (Central China TV) and there will be another next Sunday.

I published a post on her, along with some nice pictures I found, in my blog in Feb.
