Gabrielle Lamb, winner of a Princess Grace Award for Choreography, is based in NYC, where she directs her company, Pigeonwing Dance, described by The New Yorker as “eccentric…playful…curious”.

Her work has also been presented by the Banff Centre, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, BalletX, Whim W’him, Ballet Collective, Dark Circles, Sacramento Ballet, Ballet Austin, Ballet Memphis, Jacob’s Pillow, SUNY Purchase, and Dance on Camera at Lincoln Center.

Ms. Lamb has won choreographic competitions at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Milwaukee Ballet, as well as the Banff Centre’s Lee Award and a NY City Center Choreography Fellowship.  In 2018 she was awarded S&R Foundation’s Grand Prize Washington Award and participated in ABT’s inaugural Choreographic Incubator.

A native of Savannah, GA, Ms. Lamb trained at the Boston Ballet School and was a longtime soloist at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. In 2009 she was invited by Christopher Wheeldon to join his company Morphoses in NYC.  Her repertoire as a performer has also included principal roles in works by Balanchine, Kylian, Ek, Naharin, Duato, Shen Wei, and Pontus Lidberg.

DANCE Magazine described her as “a dancer of stunning clarity who illuminates the smallest details—qualities she brings to the dances she makes, too”.
