Choreographer and dance instructor Patsy Swayze, who trained her late actor son Patrick Swayze on his way to "Dirty Dancing" fame, has died. She was 86. Swayze died Monday evening at her home in Simi Valley, said publicist Annett Wolf. A cause of death was not given, though the Houston Chronicle reported Swayze suffered a stroke on Sept. 8. The Houston native choreographed the 1980 film “Urban Cowboy,” for which she coached John Travolta on the movements of the two-step.
