Choreographer Gillian Lynne passed away July 1, 2018, at the age of 92, according to her husband Peter Land, who tweeted the news from her account.

Born Gillian Barbara Pyrke in Bromley, Kent, February 20, 1926, the British Lynne began her career as a ballerina. She joined Sadler’s Wells Ballet, now known today as the Royal Ballet, during World War II. At just 20 years old, she earned her first major solo on the company’s presentation of Sleeping Beauty at the Royal Opera House.

Very sorry to hear this - another one who is no longer with us. I met her in the early sixties, she used to come to Madame Nordi to take class, not on a very regular basis. But she was very kind and chatty "must keep the technique". I miss her and have fond memories of her. We were all youngsters in those days and looked in awe at those former dancers who had moved on to other types of dancing, like choreography.

RIP Dame Gillian Lynne.
