Yvonne Mounsey, 93, Balanchine Dancer & Eminent Ballet Teacher
As a principal in Balanchine's New York City Ballet in its early years, Mounsey danced key roles in works by Tudor and Robbins as well as Mr. B.; she is best remembered as the Siren in Prodigal Son. After retiring from the stage, she first founded a ballet company in Johannesburg and later, in Los Angeles, the Westside School of Ballet, one of the West Coast's top training grounds.
