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 do and did dance as couples ... like Adagio etc. and also danced in Musicals, Nightclubs, Plays and Film.

I do not have the time nor resources available to make this a complete Ballet section... sorry! Search our general dancers section for more ballet dancers and information other than may be listed here. (Note: Historically, things can and do change such as: St. Petersburg Russia became Petrograd in 1914 and is now Leningrad, so some may have these or other dated listings)
