Rosalind says, "One thing you can say about all of us, is that we all became successful teachers. We turned out alot of people who are busy teaching and turning out more people, and performing. We all were performers of some special order, and we all had children and, omitting the tragedies and challenges that life brings to everyone, none of us became criminals, and as far as I know none of us raised criminals. I'm sure some of that came from the extraordinatory aura that Mr. Bolm had, that we were showered with. It has something to do with not having a tiny perspective on the art form, but a broad, deep, and almost religious respect for the form. The thing is that, Mr. Bolm wasn't just interested in ballet per se. He was interested in what was behind dance. And I think he sparked that interest in all of the people that were with him for any amount of time. That's my opinion."
