Greco, Jose
▪ 2001

      Italian-born flamenco dancer (b. Dec. 23, 1918, Montorio nei Frentani, Italy—d. Dec. 31, 2000, Lancaster, Pa.), came to be considered the world's greatest Spanish dancer—through appearances onstage, in films, on television, and, between 1952 and 1973, on tours with his troupe, the José Greco Dance Company—and was credited with having helped meld flamenco with traditional ballet. The Spanish government knighted him in 1962.
