From the Dance Notation Bureau

"Sadly, the Dance Notation Bureau, announces the passing of our dear friend and notator, Allan Miles, on March 5, 2018 . When Allan came to New York in 1961 he was one of only 7 certified notators recognized by the Bureau. He was with us until 1966, also teaching notation at Julliard.  Allan went on to teach Labanotation at a number of colleges and universities and giving of his knowledge to the dance world by his influence on students and colleagues. His continued interest in notation is preserved through his published works, The Gail Grant Dictionary of Classical Ballet in Labanotation, Labanotation Workbook (Part I and Part II), Labanotation for Ballet Dancers, and Balanchine's Agon. He will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

Jacques D’Amboise mentioned in his autobiography some backstabbing regarding which Russian emigre got the POB AD job back in the 1930’s.  “The Russians” he concluded, “were not very nice to one another.”

I wonder how much of that hyper-critical culture from the Ballet Russe era was taken to new places by dancers who became teachers and ADs later on.
