TIMOTHY FOX
Ballet Director; Co-Repertory Director

Tim began his training at the age of 9 in Tulsa, Oklahoma with Moscelyne Larkin and Roman Jasinski.  At the age of 13 he received a Ford Foundation Scholarship and continued in Tulsa while spending summers on full scholarship at both the School of American Ballet and American Ballet Theater School.  At 17, Tim studied full time at the School of American Ballet where he performed principal roles in Balanchine’s Divertimento #15, Danilova’s Classique and Jerome Robbins’ Interplay during SAB’s annual workshop performances.  He was asked, along with the rest of the student cast, by George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins to perform Interplay during a matinee performance with the New York City Ballet.  The response was a standing ovation and upon the curtain closing, Tim was asked to join the company.  While with the New York City Ballet he worked under the direction of George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins and Peter Martins. He performed leading roles in Fancy Free, Interplay and Four Seasons among others.  Tim left NYCB in 1984 and returned home to Tulsa, Oklahoma where he danced leads in more classical roles such as, Les Sylphides, Coppelia, and Prodigal Son. In 1986 Helgi Thomasson, Director of San Francisco Ballet, invited Tim to join the company as a soloist. He was promoted to principal within the year and performed principal roles in Forgotten Land (Jiri Kylian), Romeo & Juliet (Smuin), Sunset (Taylor), Dreams of Harmony (Kudelka), Connotations (Caniparoli), Interplay (Robbins), Symphony in C, Four Temperaments, Midsummer Night’s Dream and Serenade (Balanchine).

Upon retiring from SFB in 1990-91 he moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career and received roles in both movies and national commercials.  While in Los Angeles he taught for Mari Winsor Pilates Studio and soon opened his own Fox Fitness in 1997 which he ran for eight years.  The studio worked with celebrities, professional athletes, dancers and physically/mentally challenged clients alike.  Tim choreographed Sir John Neville’s production of “Trojan Women’’ and assisted with the movie “Safe House’’ for Sir Patrick Stewart.  He was involved in starting the Ojai Playwrights Conference and is a Founding Member of the Echo Theater Company, currently based in Los Angeles.  

Tim is grateful to have had master teachers like Stanley Williams, Andrei Kramarevsky, Alexandra Danilova, Irina Kosmovska, Antonina Tumkovsky, Richard Rapp, Willhelm Burmann, David Howard, Patricia Wilde, Leon Danielian and John Clifford who influenced his career both dancing and teaching.
