Thomas Giugovaz

Thomas Giugovaz embarked on his professional dance journey at the age of 11 when he was accepted into the renowned Scuola di Ballo del Teatro alla Scala di Milano, under the direction of Frédéric Olivieri. After years of rigorous training, he graduated in 2015. Giugovaz then moved to the United States, where he worked as a Coryphée at The Washington Ballet for one season and for three seasons at The Sarasota Ballet, under the direction of Iain Webb. During this time, he had the opportunity to perform a wide range of classical ballets, pieces from 20th-century masters and works by contemporary choreographers such as George Balanchine’s Jewels, Theme and Variations, and Bugaku, Sir Frederick Ashton’s Les Patineurs as the Blue Boy, Puck in The Dream and Monotones I, Christopher Wheeldon’s There Where She Loved, and Jerome Robbins’ The Concert as the Shy Boy, among others. He then moved to Hong Kong Ballet to work with Septime Webre, former director of The Washington Ballet, before the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic forced him back to Europe. In 2020, he joined the Slovenian National Ballet as a soloist in the ensemble, first under the leadership of Peter Dorcevski and then Renato Zanella. Here, he performed featured roles in Zanella’s Opus 73 and Alles Walzer, as well as leading roles in Romeo and Juliet, Lankedem in José Carlos Martínez’s Le Corsaire, and grand pas de deuxs from Don Quixote and Swan Lake. In September 2022, Giugovaz joined the Compañia Nacional de Danza as a soloist under the artistic direction of Joaquín De Luz. He performed in De Luz’s Giselle and Passengers Within, as well as Ricardo Amarante’s Love Fear Loss and Morgen by Nacho Duato. Giugovaz has also been part of celebrated dance galas such as the Alicia Alonso Gala in Seville, where he performed the grand pas de deux from Act III of Swan Lake, and the Ballet Royal Gala in Tallinn, where he danced Diana and Actaeon.
