Correction: The original version of this story misidentified Jacques d’Amboise in the shot showing the 1954 musical “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” The NewsHour has updated that sequence to remove the incorrect identification. We regret the error.
We take a moment to look back at the career of dancer Jacques d’Amboise, who died Sunday at age 86 in his Manhattan home following complications from a stroke. His work with the New York City Ballet, on film and in public schools, brought dance to new heights.
