KATE THOMAS

Artistic Director

Kate Thomas, Artistic Director of Ballet Neo creates contemporary ballets with mature narratives that range from deeply emotional personal stories to intricate interpretations of a wide variety of music. Thomas trained at The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and performed with Graham-based companies. Her first ballet won inclusion in Eleo Pomare’s Vital Arts Dance Festival She then turned from performance to choreography and dance education, Thomas developed an approach to movement for young children utilized by many studios and pre-schools throughout the city.  She founded B.Muse Inc., a not-for-profit corporation, to support her choreography and educational programs. B. Muse, Inc. provided dance programs, lecture demonstrations, and performances to schools in Harlem, the South Bronx, and Upper Manhattan through her Morningside Heights Dance Development Program.
​Kate Thomas served as the Director of The School at Steps, a Division of Steps on Broadway, where she redefined and developed the academic year curriculum-based program in three divisions, and designed and administered four Summer Programs. Prior to the COVID shut down, Thomas directed all youth programs at the Peridance Capezio Center in New York City.
