The Ballets de Monte-Carlo and their choreographer-director Jean-Christophe Maillot announced “with great sadness” the death of Ballet Master Glen Tuggle. He had been with the company for twelve years, from 2005.

He was “a passionate artist able to follow a piece down to the smallest detail and transmit it enthusiastically to the dancers,” the Ballets said in a press release on Tuesday evening, November 21.

“We will keep an image of our friend, as a smiling and fanatical teacher, who, until the end, was devoted to the choreographic art.”

The company added, “To his family, his friends and all those who had the chance to cross his path, we send our deepest condolences and share their pain.”
