Soloist dancer

Thomas Giugovaz

Born in Trieste, Italy on October 24th, 1996.
He begins his professional studies at the age of 11 years old at the prestigious Scuola di Ballo del Teatro alla Scala di Milano, under the direction of Frédéric Olivieri, where he graduates in 2015.

After graduation he moves to the United States of America, working for one season at The Washigton Ballet and for three seasons at The Sarasota Ballet directed by Iain Webb, as a Coryphée. In these years he dances a great repertoire of full-lenght classical ballets, ballets created by masters of the 20th century and contemporary choreographers like George Balanchine’s JewelsTheme and Variations and Bugaku, Sir Frederick Ashton’s Les Patineurs as the Blue Boy, The Dream as Puck and Monotones I, Christopher Wheeldon’s There where she loved, Jerome Robbins’ The Concert as the Shy Boy, and the lead peasant pas de deux in Sir Peter Wright’s Giselle, among many others.

He then moves to Hong Kong Ballet to follow Septime Webre, previous director of The Washigton Ballet, for a short time until the Covid19 pandemic first hit Asia, bringing his carreer back to Europe. In early 2020 he joins the Slovenian National Ballet as a soloist in the ensemble, led first by Peter Dorcevski and then by Renato Zanella, where he performs featured roles in Zanella’s Opus 73 and Alles Walzer as well as leading roles in his Romeo and Juliet, Lankedem in José Carlos Martínez’s Le Corsaire, and performs grand pas de deuxs from Don Quixote and Swan Lake.

In September 2022 he joins the Compañia Nacional de Danza as a soloist, under the artistic direction of Joaquín De Luz.
