Benois de la Danse nominee

Robert Hill has worked in all areas of dance artistry. It is quite accurate to describe him as a universal artist.

Before he became the leading dancer of the American Ballet Theater, he worked as the leading dancer at the New York City Ballet and the Royal Ballet London.

As an invited guest dancer, Mr. Hill performed with the ensemble of the Milan Teatro alla Scala, the San Francisco Ballet, the Scottish and Australian Ballets and the Asami Maki Ballet in Tokyo. His extensive repertoire includes leading roles of romantic ballet classics, including “Swan Lake,“ “Romeo and Juliet,“ and „Giselle.” He also dances in leading roles in creations of Anthony Tudor, George Balanchine and Sir Kenneth McMillan. He now also has the opportunity to work with Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris, James Kudelka and Lar Lubovich.

Recently Mr. Hill began to create his original choreographies for different American companies. One of his productions, „Baroque Game”, — done for the American Ballet Theatre, — was a favorite among critics during the fall 1999 season at the City Center. Dmitri Polischuk wrote the original music for this ballet.
