Celebrated stage and film choreographer Michael Kidd, known for crafting the dance moves in numerous productions on Broadway and the silver screen, died on Sunday in his home in Los Angeles at age 92. Over the course of a career that lasted more than 60 years, Kidd won five Tony Awards — for Finian’s Rainbow, Guys and Dolls, Can-Can, Li’l Abner, and Destry Rides Again — and he took home an honorary Oscar in 1997 for his work in movies like 1954’s Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and the 1969 Barbra Streisand-Gene Kelly collaboration Hello, Dolly! Additionally, Kidd acted in projects like Kelly’s 1955 movie It’s Always Fair Weather, and in more recent years he worked with contemporary artists like Bernadette Peters and Janet Jackson.
