People throughout the world know of Maria Tallchief as one of America’s first and greatest prima ballerinas, but for Russ Tallchief, she was always a beloved aunt first. “She made a lot of beautiful art with her body,” he says. “She’s going to remain unprecedented in my heart.”

Leigh Witchel for the Post on three promising young dancers:

‘Ballet is woman,” Balanchine famously said, but this spring and summer, the dance world is raining men. One of them is 22-year-old Gentry George, who joined Ailey II last summer. Since then, Ailey director Troy Powell says, “It was as if he put on wings and he flew.” Also worth watching are the dynamic Lloyd Mayor, 19, who turned heads a few months ago at the Martha Graham Dance Company, and Chase Finlay, a 22-year-old winner of the Clive Barnes Award, who made it to the top of the heap at New York City Ballet, when he was promoted four months ago to principal dancer. Here’s what they’re like, and where and when you can catch their next leap forward.

But while several theatres outside London barred Allan's performance as indecent, to her legions of women admirers, she was an inspiration. Margot Asquith, wife of the Liberal PM, was among those who saw Allan's dancing as a liberating expression of female sexuality
