RIP Leo Kersley

Share

Sorry to hear that Leo Kersley, dancer and ballet teacher, and author of my favourite ballet dictionary, died yesterday, aged 92. I would love to have met him. There are two lovely tributes to him from former pupils on a blog post I wrote about A Dictionary of Ballet Terms, and there are links in that post to an interview with him at the The Theatre Archive Project. See also this wonderful story from 2006 by Judith Mackrell about Leo Kersley, skateboarders and Massine.
