Name of creator
Paddy Stone was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1922. His dance career began in 1932, when he performed at a dance recital at the Winnipeg Playhouse. He joined the Winnipeg Ballet Club six years later and was its first male principal dancer. He left Winnipeg in 1946 to perform on Broadway. Later that same year he became a principal dancer of the Royal Ballet in London, England, where he stayed for two seasons. He performed in the cabaret act “Three’s Company” from 1953 to 1956.
He was choreographing for the Winnipeg Ballet Club as early as 1943 with Ziegeuner. He later choreographed Classico, Variations on Strike Up The Band, The Hands, and Bolero for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. He also choreographed for the Festival Ballet as well as numerous musical theatre, television, and film productions, including Rainbow Stage in Winnipeg. Paddy Stone passed away on September 23, 1986 in Winnipeg.
The records of Paddy Stone came to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet archives as several transfers of records from the RWB and were also collected by members of the Alumni Association.
