Ronald Emblen
Gifted character dancer who passed on his skills through teaching. By Mary Clarke for The Guardian

Ronald Emblen, who has died aged 70 of a heart condition, was one of the most gifted and best loved character dancers of his generation. He performed a wide range of roles with several companies, primarily and finally with the Royal Ballet, and will be remembered with the greatest affection for his Widow Simone in Frederick Ashton's La Fille Mal Gardée, which he danced from the early 1960s.

From The Independent.

Quote:
Ronald Emblen's work will be imprinted on the memories of many spectators of British ballet. As a young man, he was a dependable classical dancer; as a mature artist he was unforgettable in character roles, so immersed and real that he was unrecognisable each time. He was closely associated with the famous travestie part of Widow Simone in Frederick Ashton's dearly loved masterpiece La Fille mal gardée. He gave vivid colour to Widow Simone's comedy and humanity, and invested the famous clog dance with more wit and natural ease than most other performers before or after. He also danced it more often than anyone else - 269 times.
