Eva Evdokimova-Gregori, an internationally known ballerina who stood out for the delicacy and eloquent purity of her dancing and stage presence, died on April 3rd in Manhattan. She was 60 and lived in Manhattan.

In 1984, Ms. Evdokimova cited Nureyev as a major inspiration early in her career, though she acknowledged the seeming oddity of a male dancer’s influence on a ballerina. Enumerating the attributes that had drawn her to this very different kind of performer, she might almost have been talking of her own gifts: “That presence on stage. The beauty of his technique and quality of his movement. His use of space. Rudolf opened up new vistas for me.”
