(b W. Babylon, NY, 5 Feb. 1961)

US dancer, director, and choreographer. He began training aged 17 in Florida Hill and won a scholarship to the School of American Ballet. After a further year's study at the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts he made his debut with Atlantic Contemporary Ballet before joining American Ballet Theatre in 1982. He was appointed soloist in 1986, but then performed with New York City Ballet (1989–90), Royal Ballet (1990–2), and with La Scala, Scottish Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet, before returning to ABT as principal in 1994. He danced both the classical and 20th-century repertories, although an injury which kept him off the stage (1992–4) limited his range. He created several roles including Morris's Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes (1988) and Kudelka's Cruel World (1994) and retired from the company in 2002. He created his first ballet for ABT in 1999, Baroque Game (mus. Dmitry Polischuk) followed by Concerto No. 1 for Piano and Orchestra (mus. Lowell Liebermann) among others. Between 2003 and 2007 he was artistic director of Ballet de Monterrey, after which he founded his own company Robert Hill Dance. His choreography is in the repertory of several other companies including Kansas Ballet.
