Stanley Holden was a much loved and admired charactor dancer and actor/mime with the Royal Ballet who created the role of Widow Simone in Ashton's 'La Fille mal Gardee' and for me, has never been equalled in this role. He spent 30 odd years teaching in the USA.

He never stopped telling jokes in the wings.
It was fun taking his classes too!

I took class with him for the first time at the Stanley Holden Dance Center when I was 15 years old. I took my son to his classes when he was 15 so it went full circle for me. He had been master teaching at Los Angeles Ballet Academy since September. Although our students were always encouraged to attend his classes at CDT whenever they could. We were honored to have him in our midst.
