GAGE BUSH ENGLUND

5 posts in this topic

Dance writer George Dorris just wrote to say that Gage Bush Englund died yesterday.

Ballettalk members may know her as a ballet teacher and ballet director connected to American Ballet Theatre's second company, which I think was in many ways founded by her late husband Richard Englund, who also worked with the Joffrey if mem. serves. Their daughter Rachel Rutherford is in NYCB.

That's quite a shock. Gage was the eldest of the original Ford Foundation Scholarship students at SAB, in the same class with Suzanne Farrell, William Glassman, and Hilda Morales.

May she have eternal rest,

May light eternal shine upon her.

The costumes for Mr. Joffrey's last venture into choreography- POSTCARDS, were a gift from Gage Bush.

Condolences to Rachel Rutherford and Ms. Bush's many ballet progeny.

Her influence will be felt for generations to come.
