Tom Gant

Like many dancers, Thomas Gant was put into a dance class as a young child to help with slow motor skills.  Coming from an artistic family it was only natural for Tommy to fall in love with the art.  Over the years Tommy studied at some of the finest schools in the area.  Some of those include, Koresh Dance Co., Children’s Ballet Theater of  Philadelphia,  Joffrey II Trainee Co., Dance Del Bello, Dance Theatre of PA, and the Jessica Moss Dance Co. 

 

His dance technique became stronger under notable teachers such as Ronen Koresh, Althea Leslie, William DeGregory, Jeffrey Gribbler, Barbara Sandonato and Delphine DelBello Spencer.

 

Tommy is a graduate (pioneer of the program) of the Southern New Jersey Academy of Performing Arts.

Tommy danced leading roles in such ballets as “Don Quixoite”, “Coppelia”, “Nutcracker”, “Sleeping Beauty” and “Stars and Stripes”.  In addition to classical ballets, Tom has also performed in musicals such as “Swing Kids’, “Footloose” and “Grease”.

Tom credits his high school teacher and mentor, David Kloss with much of his success.  Under David’s direction, Tom also danced in “Journeys”, “Christmas Carol” and “Beauty and the Beast”. 

In his senior year of high school, Tommy became the first ever recipient of the Governor’s Award in Artistic Excellence and Leadership in the Field of Dance.  Tommy is married to fellow dancer, Fang JuChow Gant.  They met and fell in love during a Nutcracker production while performing Snow King and Queen at the Merriam Theatre in Philadelphia
