TOM GOLD DANCE
Tom Gold Dance was founded in 2007 by former New York City Ballet soloist Tom Gold. Since 1999, Mr. Gold had been organizing groups of dancers for brief tours abroad, and as his career at NYCB drew to a close, he decided to put more energy into these tours. He envisioned Tom Gold Dance as a core group of dancers who would be based in New York but would perform internationally. His goal was to give these dancers the opportunity to perform new works created specifically for them, as well as established ballets that they might not otherwise have a chance to take on. Tom Gold Dance has since performed in France, Spain, Israel, Bermuda, and Italy.
Tom Gold is an internationally known dancer and choreographer. He was a soloist with New York City Ballet for 21 years, where he performed leading roles in works by George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, Lynne Taylor-Corbett, and William Forsythe. In 2002 Susan Stroman created the ballet Double Feature for Mr. Gold. He has performed as a guest artist with THARP!, Donald Byrd the Group, New York City Opera, and many companies throughout the U.S. He can also be seen in the Warner Brothers film version of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker, as well as many Live from Lincoln Center telecasts.
Mr. Gold has created works for New York City Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theater, Orlando Ballet, Balanchine on Broadway at Studio 54, An Evening of Tango at the Miller Arts Center, Ballet Academy East, Ballet School of Stamford, The Cuyahoga Youth Ballet, the Manhattan School of Music, and Vassar College and Kykuit. He choreographed a ballet for a “Works and Process at the Guggenheim” program presented at the Miller Arts Center, and created works for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
