LOS ANGELES (AP) - A publicist says choreographer and dance instructor Patsy Swayze, the mother of late actor Patrick Swayze, has died. She was 86.

Publicist Annett Wolf said Swayze died Monday night at her home in Simi Valley. No cause of death was given.

Born in 1927, Patsy Swayze taught dance for decades. Her students included Tommy Tune and Debbie Allen.

She moved to Southern California in 1980 after choreographing the movie "Urban Cowboy."

Her skills apparently rubbed off on her son. Patrick Swayze was well known for his leading roles in "Dirty Dancing" and other films such as "Ghost."

He died in 2009 at 57 after battling pancreatic cancer.
