Position: Fernando Bujones and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar (Interview Excerpts)
On his birthday (9 March 2001) I interviewed ballet legend Fernando Bujones, illustrious principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater (ABT) from 1972, when he was 17, until 1985. A Cuban-American, Bujones’s performance style was the quintessence of the heroic, radiant approach associated with Alicia Alonso and her National Ballet of Cuba. He is currently artistic director of the Southern Ballet Theatre (Orlando, Florida).
