British dancer. He studied in Windsor and at Royal Ballet School, joining the Royal Ballet Touring Company in 1963, becoming soloist in 1964 and principal in 1966 and joining the main company in 1970 as a principal. A strong technician with an equal talent for romantic and comedy roles he was especially outstanding as Lescaut in MacMillan's Manon which he created in 1974. Other created roles were in Ashton's Sinfonietta (1967), MacMillan's Anastasia (1971 version), Elite Syncopations (1974), and Mayerling (1978), Nureyev's Tempest (1982), and Tudor's Knight Errant (1971, although injury prevented him from dancing the first night). He frequently partnered Fonteyn. After retiring in 1984 he was associate director of the Royal Academy of Dancing (1984–7) and then director (1987–91). Between 1995 and 2007 he was ballet master with English National Ballet.
