Ballet Dancers List

      Although this site is mainly Dedicated to couples dancing, it did not seem right to not include Ballet as there are many Ballet dancers and choreographers who crossed over from one to the other.

   The "Golden Age of Ballet" was from 1908-1935. The American Ballet was officially started when Ballanchine and Dimitriew were hired to organize and establish the School of American

Ballet. Many times Ballet dancers of the time danced as couples (like Adagio) etc. and also danced in Musicals, Nightclubs, Plays and Movies. However, I do not have the time or resources available to make this a complete Ballet section... sorry! Search our general dancers section for more ballet dancers and information than may be listed here. ( Note: St. Petersburg Russia became Petrograd in 1914 and is now Leningrad, Russia.)
