Quite a few here I have never seen before, and some are really fun. Also a number of inaccuracies in terms of who, where, when. There is a solo photo of Markova that says it is from Aurora's Wedding, by Diaghilev! :rolleyes: And, of course the photo is from Pas de Quatre. Some other things not quite right are pointed out in the comments section.

A very beautiful lady and lovely person as well as dancer and teacher. I was privileged to work with her during the years we were both teaching at the University of Oklahoma. May she rest in peace.

We have lost not only a legendary figure, but one of the most beautiful, kind, generous, and inspiring people I have ever known. A gloriously musical dancer and teacher, passionate, devoted, wise, and all other positive adjectives I can think of. She was a friend, and also, when I was young, a mentor. A very, very important person in my life as a dancer and teacher. This was devastating news last night, as I guess I just thought she was someone who would go on forever, giving her own special love and knowledge and inspiration to all who were fortunate enough to know her.
