Geoffrey Holder

Recommended Posts

It had been awhile since I saw a photo from that very successful ad campaign for 7-Up -- what a great face he had!

I remember the distinction of his voice from that 7-Up TV commercial. It's says a lot that decades later so many people remember the commercial and the product he was advertising.

Geoffrey Holder dances offstage to a new choreographic composition.

"Geoffrey started to dance again. In his bed. Purest of spirits. Still Geoffrey Holder. Then he summoned me to take his hands, and this most unique dancer / choreographer pulled himself up from his bed as if to reach the sky. It was then I broke the code: he was telling me he was going to dance his way out. Still a Geoffrey Holder production. If it had been up to him, this evening’s solo would have been it."

What a man! What a way to go.

Sincere condolences for his family and friends and all who will miss him.
