Roberto Bolle, born March 26, 1975, Casale Monferrato, Italy, is an Italian danseur, known as a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre and also holds guest artist status with The Royal Ballet and La Scala Theatre Ballet.

Bolle began ballet studies at age seven at a local school, and was accepted at the La Scala theatre ballet school in Milan at the age of eleven.

In 1996, following an appearance in Romeo and Juliet, Bolle was promoted to Principal Dancer at La Scala. He left that position when he was 21 to pursue a freelance career. Since then he has starred in many ballets including “Sleeping Beauty,” “Swan Lake,” “Cinderella,” “The Nutcracker,” and “La Bayadère,” just to name a few.

Outside ballet, Bolle has appeared in numerous fashion and style magazines, and has been featured in advertising campaigns. He also has an agreement with “Giorgio Armani,” who supplies him with clothes.
