Reed, Janet

Reed, Janet
▪ 2001

      American dancer (b. Sept. 15, 1916, Tolo, Ore.—d. Feb. 28, 2000, Seattle, Wash.), was noted not only for her technique but also for her charm, vivacity, and flair for comedy, all of which were especially well showcased in the ballets Fancy Free and Interplay. During her performing career, from the late 1930s through the '50s, she danced with such companies as the San Francisco Ballet, Ballet Theatre (now American Ballet Theatre), and New York City Ballet, as well as on Broadway; she later served as NYCB's ballet mistress, and in 1974 she aided in the founding of Seattle's Pacific Northwest Ballet, which she served as artistic director for the following two years.
