An ad in the NYT indicated that M Gomes will perform in the Fire Island Dance Festival:


It's not clear to me which portion of the festival Gomes will participate in.

Thanks for the Link. Currently, there's a video of Danny Tidwell dancing solo on a dance floor placed right at the edge of the Great South Bay. It's a fantastic setting, with beautiful lighting at late afternoon. The line up for this season is impressive as well:


Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Camille A. Brown
Fabrice Calmels & Erica Lynette Edwards

Principal, Joffrey Ballet Chicago
Gallim Dance
Marcelo Gomes
Principal, American Ballet Theatre
Mark Stuart Dance Theatre
Merce Cunningham Dance Company
Stephen Petronio Company
Yuan Yuan Tan & Damian Smith
Principals, San Francisco Ballet
Featuring choreography by Christopher Wheeldon

Piece d'Occasion - Shea Sullivan
Travis Wall
With Teddy Forance, Misha Gabriel
and Nick Lazzarini

For Gomes fans in south Florida this summer, he and Julie Kent are scheduled to dance in the Boca Ballet production of Giselle, July 30-31 and August 1. (Location, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida). It's a school company, but does high level work and manages to attract in some of the best guest artists in the business (as is the case this year).
