When I looked at the first photo, of the "Waltz of the Flowers," my eye went straight to Reynolds: there's some much life and movement in her pose.

I've printed this article (photos and all) and will preserve it inside the pages of my copy of Repertory in Review.

I recently re-watched "Fame" and thought of Antonia Francheschi, who could have been promoted in both senses after achieving recognition from the movie, but went to back to the nunnery and retired in the NYCB corps.
Of course, with Reynolds, the stage's loss is our great gain through her books, as editor and writer, and through her video projects.

.... I didn't like the life. I didn't like all the hours spent waiting around the the fct that you never knew your schedule until the night before, and I didn't like the dieting and all that body stuff. I didn't like being exhausted and depressed all the time.
Fortunately, she had many other skills and interests, got a Columbia education, and turned to editing, writing, and the creation of some of the most important projects for the preservation of American ballet history.. One of the bonuses of this interview is what she tells us about the process of writing Repertory in Review and her excellent survey of 20th century dance, No Fixed Points (with Malcolm McCormick), and the creation of the Balanchine Video Archives project.
