The great French choreographer Maurice Béjart died yesterday. I blogged about Béjart a few months back; his work has a combination of rigor, joy, and charm that any medium could claim as its holy grail.

Thanks for the post. I saw his company perform in Boston a few times years ago (80's, I think) and saw Jorge Donn perform in that amazing version of Bolero. It was hypnotic.
