My Bio


DANCER
 
 Born in Bedforshire, England, Gemma Bond began her ballet training with Sylvia Bebbs. In 1993  she was accepted into the Royal Ballet School, where she later danced the leading role of Zulma in Giselle at the school's annual performance upon graduation in 2000.
 
Bond joined The Royal Ballet in 2000 and was promoted to first artist in 2003. Her repertory included Olga In Onegin, Princess Stephanie in Mayerling, Clara in The Nutcracker, the Fairy of the Song Bird in The Sleeping Beauty, a Cygnet in Swan Lake, Marie in Anastasia and a sylphide in La Sylphide. She created a role in Poppy Ben David's Siren Song (2000), which was part of The Royal Ballet's "The New Works."

Bond joined American Ballet Theatre as a member of the corps de ballet in January 2008. Her repertory with the Company includes Galya in The Bright Stream, the Fairy Spring in Frederick Ashton's Cinderella, Her Other Stepsister in James Kudelka's Cinderella, Mazurka Lady in Coppélia, an Odalisque in Le Corsaire, Amour in Don Quixote, Helena in The Dream, Vera in A Month in the Country, the Chinese Dance and one of the Nutcracker's Sisters in Alexei Ratmansky's The Nutcracker, Olga in Onegin, the Fairy Miettes qui tombent (Breadcrumb) and the Sapphire Fairy in The Sleeping Beauty, Cygnet and the Italian Princess in Swan Lake, Effie in La Sylphide and roles in Black Tuesday, Company B, Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes, Dumbarton and In the Upper Room.
She created Columbine in Ratmansky’s The Nutcracker, Cinderella in Ratmansky's The Sleeping Beauty. Bond created a leading role in Liam Scarlett’s With a Chance of Rain, and a role in Everything Doesn’t Happen at Once.
 
 
 
CHOREOGRAPHER 
 
Bond got her first taste of choreography at the young age of 13 when she competed in the Royal Ballet's Sir Kenneth MacMillan Choreographic Competition. She later returned to choreography when she joined American Ballet Theater, in 2008.
 
From 2010 to the present, Ms Bond has created three new ballets for ABT's Choreographic Institute, and various new works for New York Theatre Ballet, Intermezzo Ballet Company, and the Hartt School. She choreographed a pas de deux that was performed at the prestigious Eric Bruhn Prize, and a ballet that was performed at the Youth America Grand Prix Gala in 2014. Ms Bond has also worked on commercial projects with 1stAveMachine.
 
Ms. Bond was awarded the fellowship grant from The New York Choreographic Institute (an affiliate of New York City Ballet) in 2014. With this grant Ms Bond was able to create her new work, The Giving .  The Giving is inspired by Shel Silverstein's, The Giving Tree. Ms Bond took this opportunity to commission original music by Lori Scacco, and used two dancers from American Ballet Theater, Christine Shevchenko and Sterling Baca.

KICKSTARTER

The Joyce Performances JULY 25-26th
I've seen so much inspiring work over the years at The Joyce and have been fortunate enough to dance there myself several times. It's always been such a special place for me. I very much want to show my respect for this legendary dance space by producing work that I believe in 100%. Performances of this nature incur large costs and, in addition to the generous commissioning support of The Joyce, we are seeking additional funds to close some of the gaps needed to cover the various expenses related to mounting a production like this. We have already been raising funds to cover the cost of rehearsal studios, costume makers, stage management, lighting, and more, and we can ensure that 100% of your pledge at this stage of the process will go towards dancer salaries. With your help this talented group can complete the rehearsal process and put on a show we are more than thrilled to share with you. 

It's an honor to be part of The Joyce Ballet Festival. We fundraise in hope that people like you will want to encourage new works from artists like us.

Thank you so much, 
Gemma Bond
