Paloma Herrera (born in Buenos Airesmarker, Argentinamarker on December 21, 1975), is a principal ballet dancer with the American Ballet Theatre.

Ms. Herrera was born in Buenos Airesmarker, Argentinamarker, and began studying ballet there at the age of seven with teacher Olga Ferri.

With her reputation growing, Ms. Herrera was invited by Natalia Makarova to study with her at the English National Ballet in Londonmarker. Soon afterwards, she studied at the School of American Ballet in New York Citymarker, where she made such an impression that she was selected to dance the lead role in Raymonda in the school's annual workshop performance. Ms. Herrera officially became a member of the American Ballet Theatre's corps de ballet in 1991; by 1993, she was promoted to soloist, and by 1995 she became a principal.[287579]
