'Reverence to a Dancemaker,' by Sarah Kaufman for the Washington Post. Eric Hampton, who died from a crippling illness at the age of 54, clearly made a great impression. Have any of our readers seen his work? <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>There was nothing trendy about Eric Hampton's choreography; in fact, you could call it old-fashioned. Crystal clear. Meaningful. Classically based and musically astute, but often with comic licks and always a highlighted sense of humanity. That combination of intelligence and feeling -- shown in often surprising ways -- made Hampton, who died Tuesday at age 54, the area's foremost dancemaker.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P> <A HREF="http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A38470-2001Feb21.html" TARGET=_blank>http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A38470-2001Feb21.html</A> <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited February 23, 2001).]

Having read a NY Times obit my parents mailed me, I learned that, like me, Mr. Hampton was a NJ native and graduate of Juilliard! Wow! He seemed to gallantly endure a crippling, horrible illness (Lou Gehrig's disease or ALS)with dignity and grace....a lesson for all of us.
