(D) who introduced

There are 3 items parallel to each other, two are in non-underlined portion and one in the underlined portion..
The non-underlined portion should tell us the structure of the parallel items..

Dance fans knew Tamara Geva as a soloist in several Ballanchine works, a dancer who introduced his choreography to the United States, and as a star in Broadway theater.

So parallelism requires - as xyz..
So, it can be B or E
(B) as a dancer which introduced
WHICH cannot be used for human beings. WHO is correct relative pronoun to refer to a person.

(E) as the dancer who introduced
CORRECT as it is..

E

"the" is a definite article, and is accompanied by details of the Subject/Noun

In this case, if the answer were to be
"...as a soloist, as the dancer, and as a star..."
then it will be incorrect usage of "the" as the statement doesn't give any further details about the dancer

"...as a soloist, as the dancer who did something, and as a star..."
then we know that the statement is referring to a specific dancer

*BREAKDOWN*
-Meaning: "People knew Tamara Geva AS X, AS Y, and AS Z."
=> X,Y,Z must be parallel and must be the same in structure.
- X = "a soloist", Z = "a star"
=> Y must be a Noun/Noun phrase

*APPLICATION*
(A) a dancer who introduced -> lack of "as"
(B) as a dancer which introduced -> this option fixes the parallelism but introduce new error "which" referring to a person
(C) the dancer to introduce -> lack of "as"
(D) who introduced -> a new relative clause is not needed here
(E) as the dancer who introduced -> Tada! Correct
