Ronald Perry

Dance Theater of Harlem

American Ballet Theater

Bejart Ballet

Ronald Perry began his professional career with Dance Theatre of Harlem after attending its affiliate school. In December of 1990, he and Christina Johnson, also with DTH, “became the first black dancers to appear with the Royal Ballet since the departure of Johaar Mosaval”. He danced with the company for 11 years. After an unfulfilling experience with American Ballet Theatre, where he performed principal roles, Perry joined Bejart Ballet in Brussels.
