Wow! I saw her dance several times in my youth, including in "Miss Julie" with Erik Bruhn. Wonderful dancer and actress. I'm glad to hear that she's having a long life.

She had an amazing range - from pure lyricism to strong character roles. Unfortunately I have never seen her, when she was still young and danced the big roles like the Julie you mention, Juliet, Sylphide, Giselle etc., but I have seen her in plenty of character roles late in her career, and she was one of those seldom dancers who can "fill the stage" by doing almost nothing.
