In October 2019, Cornejo celebrated his 20th anniversary with ABT with a special performance at the Lincoln Center, including George Balanchine's Apollo with Cornejo's frequent partner, Misty Copeland, El Chamuyo with his sister and former Boston Ballet principal dancer, Erica Cornejo, and Twyla Tharp's new work, A Gathering of Ghosts.


In 2014, Cornejo was awarded the Prix Benois de la Danse for Outstanding Male Dancer, for his portrayals of Aminta in Sylvia, Caliban in The Tempest and a leading role in Symphony #9, as well as for his appearance in Martha Clarke’s Chéri.


He won a Bessie Award in 2013, and the Prix Benois de la Danse in 2014. In 2004, Joan Acocella called Cornejo "the most technically accomplished male ballet dancer in the United States." He was described by critic Claudia La Rocco as "not a fairy-tale prince," but "something more interesting, and more useful, really, for ballet: a believable, 21st-century hero."

More recently, he has collaborated with Italian ballerina Alessandra Ferri, after they starred together in a 2013 ABT production. This collaboration led to other projects, including the 2016 production "TRIO ConcertDance". In 2015, Cornejo was the artistic director of the Latin American Stars Gala, part of the Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles County's 50th anniversary celebrations.


Cornejo has earned international recognition as a soloist. In 2005, he was appointed a "Messenger of Peace" by UNESCO and "Dancer of the Year" by The New York Times; he won a Bessie Award in 2013. In 2014, he won the "Best Male Dancer" award of the international Prix Benois de la Danse, along with the Positano Prize in Italy.


In a 2004 profile in The New Yorker, critic Joan Acocella called Cornejo "the most technically accomplished male ballet dancer in the United States" even though, she noted, he is unusually short for a male principal. Critic John Rockwell wrote in The New York Times: "What makes Mr. Cornejo great is that his stunts don't look like stunts but like beautiful dancing." The NYT's chief dance critic, Alastair Macaulay, praised his artistic range in 2016: "His jumps’ height and his turns’ speed matter less than their windblown, tilting ecstasy and shining, boyish fervor. How can this paragon of adolescent lyricism also be the mature prince or witty imp we see in other ballets?" In the Los Angeles Times in 2013, Susan Reiter wrote: "Cornejo has elegantly and boldly left expectations behind. The phenomenal technique continues to amaze, but he always uses it to express the essence of each role." Critic Gia Kourlas called "Momentum", a piece Cornejo choreographed to music by Philip Glass, an "unpretentious exploration of his clean virtuosity." He generally attracts enthusiastic applause, indicating his popular appeal.


In 1999, at the ABT, Cornejo was chosen for the role of the Bronze Idol in Makarova's production of La Bayadère in Japan. Soon after, in 2000, he was promoted to the rank of soloist, and in 2003 became a Principal Dancer. Since then, he has danced many major roles; signature roles include Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet, and the leading male role in Ratmansky's Symphony No. 9.


At 16, he placed first at the Eighth International Moscow Competition, becoming the youngest winner in the history of the competition. In 1998, aged 17, he joined the ABT Studio Company as an apprentice.


Herman Cornejo (born 13 May 1981) is an Argentine-born ballet dancer and a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre. He has had leading roles created for him by Alexei Ratmansky and Twyla Tharp; his signature roles include Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet, and the leading male role in Ratmansky's Symphony No. 9.
