Recruited to ballet from an orphanage, Jorge Esquivel, the winner of many prestigious prizes, and Alicia’s partner for nearly a quarter of a century, represented the very best of a generation and credits Fernando, who remains his friend to this day, with offering him an objective,\ yet intelligent and compassionate approach to teaching ballet, which he now does at San Francisco Ballet School.
