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.
