"Royal Ballet founder Dame Ninette dies, aged 102 "
 
  

Dame Ninette de Valois has died at the age of 102.

The founder of the Royal Ballet was one of the greatest influences on classical ballet in the UK.

She died this morning at her home in Barnes, south-west London.

Dame Ninette also founded the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Royal Ballet School.

She created many renowned works. The Rake's Progress was staged by the Royal Ballet at a celebration for her 100th birthday at the Barbican in 1998.

Sir Anthony Dowell, the Royal Ballet's director, said: "With the passing of Dame Ninette de Valois we acknowledge the passing of one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential figures in the world of the arts. "
