Dancer-choreographer Beverly Blossom dead at 88

Beverly Blossom, a leading modern dancer in New York City in the 1950s and 1960s who went on to be a master teacher at the University of Illinois and a celebrated choreographer and performer of pieces that were at turns sly, sardonic, heart-breaking and funny, has died in Chicago. She was 88.
