Commmenter: “I was amazed watching him “fly”…did not nor do I care what his personal life was. He was strong, light and graceful with passion that mesmerized me…and I am not a dancer or a devotee. Just a normal everyday person who appreciated the devotion and athleticism it takes to be a dancer (female and male). RIP Rudolf.”
