Frederick Ashton

 Sir Frederick Ashton (1904-1988), English choreographer. He took ballet lessons with Leonide Massine, Marie Rambert, danced with Bronislava Nijinska, and he began choreographing for Rambert, then for Ninette de Valois. From 1963 to 1970 he directed the Royal Ballet, and afterwards he continued making ballets for the company.

Vaughan, David: Frederick Ashton and his ballets. New York, Alfred A. Knopf, 1977.  

  She had ... the most extraordinary quality of repose, she would stand for what seemed quite a long time doing nothing, and then make a very small gesture that seemed full of meaning.

  She also covered the stage in a most remarkable way.

   She had a wonderful way of running, in which she what I call 'left herself behind', and you felt a breeze running through her hair and everything else.

  And she had the most beautiful square feet, I remember, and the most impressive hands, and she wasn't really the old camp that everyone makes her now, she was very serious, and held the audience and held them completely.
