The Company

Robert Hill

Artistic Director

Robert Hill

Beginning his 6th year as Artistic Director, Robert Hill continues with his vision for the company to make ballet relevant to today’s audiences. Mr. Hill blends modern entertainment with classical ballet and his choreography has been critically acclaimed in the Orlando Sentinel as energetic, graceful and theatrically beautiful. Under his direction, artistic collaborations have developed with other organizations such as The Abbey, The Bach Festival Society of Winter Park, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and Cirque du Soleil.

 

Mr. Hill has been a principal dancer with ABT, The Royal Ballet, and the New York City Ballet. As a guest artist, he has appeared with numerous companies including the Scottish Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet, and the Australian Ballet. Mr. Hill’s interpretation of the title role in John Cranko’s Onegin, opposite Julie Kent as Tatiana, presented at the Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center by ABT, was selected by the New York Times as one of the “Ten Best Moments in Dance” in 2002.

 

Mr. Hill is especially grateful to the loving dedication he received in his initial training with Liz Bevilacqua and Al Packard of The Dussich Dance Studio, and with Phyllis Papa of the Atlantic City Ballet.
