A family member says Kidd was 92-years-old, and died of cancer Sunday night.

The choreographer was best known for producing exuberant dance numbers for Broadway shows such as Guys and Dolls and Can-Can. He also worked on movies, including the 1954 film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

During his long career, Kidd won five Tony Awards for his theater work. He also earned a special Academy Award in 1997 in recognition of his choreography for movies.
