How sad and strange to see this note about the passing of Roy Tobias. He was one of my first teachers in Japan. As an American dancer in a Japanese company (with blonde hair) with no problems in french, but rather rudimentary Japanese, I remember his interest, care, detailed critiques, busy and controlled rehearsals, and chance to remember that english was my first language. It's been many many years since then but I am glad of the chance to remind myself of where I've been, and who influenced my young dance career. With much gratitude for the past, and deepest sympathies to his friends and family.
