Several NYCB dancers (Sara Mearns, Justin Peck, Ashley Bouder) have either tweeted or put on Instagram that former NYCB principal and ballet master Albert Evans died late Monday evening. More detail will probably be forthcoming.

The most personal memory I have of Evans was from a tribute/memorial to the late Ulysses Dove that took place at the State Theater. Evans and various others performed Dove's Red Angels, and at the bows Evans had to wipe away tears. I remember reading that Evans regarded Dove as a mentor and role model.

So sorry Evans is gone at such a young age.

Very sad news. And he obviously touched a generation of dancers as a coach, too. While he was very good in a host of Balanchine roles, some of my favorite performances of his were in somewhat guilty-pleasure pieces, because he could make bad ballets look really good with his beautifully musical dancing. He has passed way too early.

There are really too many to link but many members of the ballet world have posted tributes on Instsgram, Facebook, and Twitter. It's very sad and my condolences to Albert Evans' friends and family and to the ballet community of which he seems to have been a beloved figure.
