Never saw Susan Jaffe dance as a principal. Her tenure as an ABT prima ballerina came after I had stopped watching ballet, although she started in the ABT corps, and quickly made an impression on the dance world, during my last days as a balletomane in the 1980’s.

What follows probably isn’t the best video of her.  The music is frantic, the stage looks shrunken, and her shoes are annoyingly loud.  But I know a lot of people still treasure the memory of her dancing.  And so, enjoy:
