Quick Reference

(b Nottingham, 27 Jul. 1958)

British ice dancer and choreographer. He formed his renowned ice-dance partnership with Jayne Torvill in 1975, winning four consecutive world championships from 1981 to 1984. In 1984 the pair won the gold medal in the Sarajevo Olympics, performing a free dance interpretation of Ravel's Bolero which set new standards for musicality and expression within the sport. Between 1985 and 1990 they toured the world with their own company also starring in the television special Fire and Ice in which Dean danced without skates. In 1990 they returned to amateur competitions, winning the gold medal at the World Championships in 1994, then continued to stage a number of spectacular ice dance shows. Dean retired from performing in 1998 but returned in 2007 to appear in the UK television show Dancing on Ice. In 1996 Dean choreographed his first stage ballet for English National Ballet, Encounters (mus. Paul Simon). See also Torvill and Dean.
