Fernando Bujones

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I just came across  it. A short documentary about Bujones in his early days. Some brief but nice footage of Balanchine & Danilova coaching, and some wonderful dancing with Cynthia Gregory are highlight for me.

The image of him with the title School of American Ballet 1973 (around 6+ minutes) looks very like photos of Robert Fairchild.

Thank you Vipa for finding this documentary of Fernando.  When he still was with SAB, he would perform with the Eglevsky Ballet. I had the good fortune to dance with him-along with Marina Eglevsky in the Glinka pas de trois. He was a tremendously hard worker even with all of his natural gifts- never saw him phone it in- either in class or in performance. He also could laugh at himself at times and was a true gentleman. Quite an inspiration to be around as well. Surely gone too soon.     In the SAB segment I think I saw Kevin Haigen smiling at one point.
