Kenneth MacDonald (December 31, 1948 - April 20, 1995)

A dancer with New York City Opera Ballet, Western Ballet, Netherlands Dance Theater, and Milwaukee Ballet, Jorge Samaniego choreographed for Puerto Rican Dance Theater and the Des Moines Ballet in Iowa. In 1978, the Des Moines Ballet directed their attention towards a more professional presentation and retained Jorge Samaniego as Artistic Director and Kenneth MacDonald as Associate Artistic Director. They provided the necessary expertise and artistic direction to make the company a reality in a very short time. Dance Magazine lists as Samaniego's surviving companion Kenneth MacDonald. On the AIDS quilt, MacDonald did for Samaniego, he wrote: "To Jorge Samaniego, my tears, my love, Kenneth" Kenneth MacDonald died of AIDS in 1995. On another panel, they are listed together, side by side.
