Age: 68

 

Summary: Australian-born ballet dancer and controversial director of the world-renowned Royal Ballet School in Covent Garden who was once considered as one of the most acclaimed members of the international ballet world and whose internationalist approach to produce "more employable dancers" at a perceived cost to aesthetic standards in English ballet caused controversy but won jobs for many of her students and also held by some to favor overseas dance students more than British-born children during her 15-year tenure.
