Jacques d' Amboise: Part Two
A few years ago, Jacques came to St. Louis to promote his book, "I Was A Dancer". When I found out he was coming, I swiftly contacted his publisher to request an interview. I was instructed to arrive at his hotel in the early afternoon. I nervously waited in the lobby until I received a call telling me to go to his room. My nerves settled as he opened the door shouting, "Christian!"' For the next hour, we talked like old friends. He was extremely kind and reflective. Amazing insight into history. This is part two of my archived conversation with the legendary Balanchine dancer.
