It is with regret that we must inform our readers that Elvi Henriksen died a fortnight ago, at the age of 86.

Elvi Henriksen was a concert pianist, who devoted much of her life to the ballet. Her husband is the great mime, and former head of the ballet at the Royal Theatre, Niels Bjoern Larsen. Her daughter, Dinna Bjoern, now heads the Finnish Ballet.

In the famous 1967 Danmarks Radio series, on the six Bournonville Schools, made for television, she can be seen at work in the some of the frames.

Thanks for this, Katharine. She also taught a "Rhythm" class in the school, when I was watching classes there in the early '90s. And she write, edited and published a magazine for the school children for many years.
