TEXAS BALLET THEATER


Dancer | 2003-2015

Thomas Kilps comes to Texas from Madison, Wisconsin, where he began his training with Studio One, Monona Academy of Dance, and Madison Ballet. He continued his training with Pittsburgh Ballet Theater School, The Rock School, and Houston Ballet’s Ben Stevenson Academy before joining Texas Ballet Theater in 2003. Mr. Kilps has enjoyed countless roles in Ben Stevenson’s ballets, some of which include “Ptolemy” in Cleopatra, “Renfield” in Dracula, “White Rabbit” in Alice in Wonderland, “Mercutio” in Romeo and Juliet, "Amour" in Don Quixote, and "Jester" in Cinderella. When not dancing, Thomas runs his premiere dancewear company Dance Jox. This is Thomas' twelfth season with Texas Ballet Theater.

DANCE JOX

I created Dance Jox in 2013. This is an ongoing project to make men's dancewear. I have one product that is currently being produced. It is the dance belt. So far it is considered to be one of the most comfortable dance belts on the market. I am very proud of that!
