It all started in 2008 while preparing for the New-York International Ballet Competition. Thomas decided to choreograph his own solo for the competition and renewed the experience in 2010 for the Jackson USA IBC. As the years went by, many opportunities came to create his own work for the Colorado Ballet and Boulder Ballet with ‘Nostalgia’ in 2015 and ‘Riviera’ in 2016. This last one became the first show that the company put together in 2017 at Colorado Ballet’s Black Box Theatre.



Kevin Gael Thomas is originally from France where he studied at Rosella Hightower’s International Dance Center. He finalized his training graduating with honors from the Canada’s National Ballet School. Upon graduation Thomas was invited to join The Houston Ballet . After one successful season in Texas, he joined Colorado Ballet to dance many leading roles such as Peter Pan or the Nutcracker Prince. He is now a Soloist with the Colorado Ballet and has founded the Thomas Dance Project in 2016.
