About Thomas Dance Project

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
