Marcelo Gomes

How do choreographers create a ballet? Youth America Grand Prix invites audiences to take a peek inside the process this Monday, February 4, with a special benefit program called "Creating the Dance with Marcelo Gomes." Although the American Ballet Theatre principal has only recently begun choreographing, a number of his works have been seen at YAGP galas.

 

I wish Marcelo Gomes were my best friend. The man is a joyous ball of energy that I want to share mac & cheese with, and take out disco dancing on a Saturday night, and maybe swap some juicy gossip with while getting our toenails painted. So far, I've settled for simply watching his glorious dancing at ABT.

Hey guys!

Last Sunday and Monday, I had the opportunity to perform in Works & Process at the Guggenheim Museum. It was so much fun! Before the performance, there was a company class with ABT that I got to take--and wow, the company dancers are soooo good. It was amazing to be in the same class with them.
