Jacques d'Amboise - Dead, you know?

His ass couldn’t live forever.

I read his autobiography, one of the best dancer memoirs ever. Lots of juicy tidbits about the heyday of NYCB and George Balanchine.

Short clip of him in Western Symphony with Balanchine’s ex-wife, ballerina Tanaquil Le Clercq whose career was tragically cut short by polio.

Natural causes?

Up until about a year ago, I was getting emails (I was on the NDI mailing list) from him. Bless him, it’s a wonderful program they bring to NYC public schools.

This is a loss for many.

A nice guy and a creative force. I had a nice long meeting with him once.

I must admit, I always got him confused with Rene Auberjonois, and sometimes Jacques Cousteau as well.

How could you get him confused with Cousteau, of all people?

Fantastic dancer, and incredibly funny and charming in interviews.

Straight? I mean, I know he was married, but that doesn't prove anything.

Yes R9 he was straight. Not all male dancers are gay. Balanchine was famously heterosexual, he married or pursued ballerinas in NYCB, most famously in his later years the much younger Suzanne Farrell.

R7 I used to love watching the Undersea World of Jean Cocteau on PBS.

Through his various free dance schools and programs, he introduced ballet to city children the world over.

Rest In Peace, Mr. d'Amboise.

His body in the photo at OP! Fuck!

There was a charming little movie about that, r12, called "He Makes Me Feel Like Dancing". It won the Oscar for Best Documentary feature. Here are the kids from the movie performing to the nominated song from "Flashdance"
