(b New York, 31 Jan. 1937)

US dancer, choreographer, and ballet director. He studied at the High School of Performing Arts, the Juilliard School, and with Tudor and Craske. He began his career in 1956 with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet, becoming a soloist in 1958. He also danced with H. Ross in Spoleto in 1959. From 1961 to 1971 he was one of the premier dancers at American Ballet Theatre. He guested with the Royal Swedish Ballet, London Festival Ballet, and the Royal Danish Ballet, joining the latter as a principal dancer (1971–6). He choreographed several ballets including Dichterliebe (mus. Schumann, 1972) and Asylum (mus. C. Ruggles, 1974). From 1976 he was artistic co-director of Ballet West in Utah and in 1985 reconstructed Bournonville's 1855 ballet Tales of the Arabian Nights: The Story of Abdallah for the company. He had discovered Bournonville's handwritten scenario for the forgotten ballet at Sotheby's in New York in 1971 and as well as staging it for Ballet West, he later staged it for the National Ballet of Canada (1997). In 1985 he was appointed artistic director of the Boston Ballet and during his twelve-year tenure introduced modern dance works to the repertoire, developed new choreography, and secured new premises for the company. He left Boston in 1997 but in 2006 emerged from retirement to direct Orlando Ballet, after the sudden death of Bujones.
