A dancer I never saw, a giantess for her day (5 foot 9, if I'm remembering correctly).
There's a piece about her in The Times (London) today. Did anyone here see her dance? Any memories? How is she regarded now as former director of (then) London Festival Ballet?
I saw her when I was very young, but I thought, at that time, that she was awesome! She was elegant, gorgeous, beautiful legs and feet, and the perfect Lilac Fairy.
