Roland Petit (January 13, 1924 – July 10, 2011) was a French choreographer and dancer born in Villemomble, near Paris, France. He trained at the Paris Opéra Ballet school, and became well known for his creative ballets.

French dancer and choreographer Roland Petit died in Geneva on Sunday. He was 87.

Associated with the Paris Opera Ballet and the Ballet de Marseille for a number of years, Petit was credited for creating more than 100 ballets throughout his career. Additionally, he choreographed dance sequences for a handful of movies, notably Samuel Goldwyn's Hans Christian Andersen (1952), a color extravaganza starring Danny KayeFarley Granger, and Petit's future wife Zizi Jeanmaire; two 1955 Leslie Caronvehicles, the Cinderella tale The Glass Slipper and Daddy Long Legs, which paired Caron with Fred Astaire; and Henri Decoin's Folies-Bergère (1956), with Jeanmaire, Eddie Constantine, and Nadia Gray.

"With his muse Zizi Jeanmaire," whom Petit married in 1954, "he wrote some of the most beautiful pages of contemporary music hall," French Minister of CultureFrédéric Mitterrand eulogized. Roland Petit and Zizi Jeanmaire remained married until his death.
