Lacey Thomas

Lacey Thomas is a native New Yorker who began training at the Dance Theatre of Harlem School under the direction of the late artistic director emeritus Arthur Mitchell; she received a graduate certificate from the Professional Training Program in 2013. She became a member of New York City Opera Children’s Division at age 12, performing in Verdi’s Macbeth, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, and Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. Ms. Thomas has also studied modern, jazz, tap, and African genres, and, while majoring in business management at the City College of New York, she continued her professional training with the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble. She joined Charlotte Ballet II in 2013 and performed in works including Balanchine’s Western Symphony and Jean-Pierre Bounefoux’s Cinderella.  

Ms. Thomas has performed as a guest artist for the Albano Ballet Company in Hartford, Connecticut, and at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and she was featured as a ballet dancer and instructor in the documentary Black Ballerina. After starting her own open hip hop classes she founded her own dance company, LEGACY, in 2018. The hip hop–based company uses her ballet background in training aspiring professionals as versatile dancers. Lacey Thomas is the first hip hop faculty instructor at the Dance Theatre of Harlem School, and she leads the dance department at Urban Academy Laboratory High School.
