Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, Father of Canadian ballet dies of cancer TORONTO (CP) Boris Volkoff, generally accepted as the father of Canadian ballet, died Monday of cancer at the age of 74. Born Boris Baskakoff in Tula, Russia, he came to Canada in 1929 and started a billet school which a decade later grew into the Volkoff Canadian Ballet Company. tils school produced two top ballerinas; Melissa Hayden, recently retired as prima ballerina with the New York ballet, and Patricia Drylie. who rose to the top of the Radio City Music Hall's dance corps. When he was 18, Volkoff was accepted by the Bolshoi Ballet School in Moscow for training as a teacher and choreographer under Alexander Gorsky. Volkoff took part in many of the initial plans for the National Ballet. The founding of that company and the arrival of Celfa Franca marked the eclipse of his career. He was given the Order of Canada last October by tormer Governor General Roland Michener, an honor he considered to be formal acceptance by his adopted country.
