Shortly after graduating from The Juilliard School, Gia Mongell made her Broadway debut. As an original (and the youngest) cast member of An American in Paris, Gia performed Christopher Wheeldon’s Tony Award-winning choreography at The Palace Theatre as well as at the 69th Annual Tony Awards. She was later invited to join the US National Tour and the show’s final run at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, France. New York theater credits include shows at The Metropolitan Opera and roles in concert pieces by Twyla Tharp, Pina Bausch, and Nacho Duato while at Juilliard. Gia also sings and acts; she appeared in Misty Copeland’s commercial campaign for Under Armor and the premiere party for the 20th Century Fox feature film Deadpool.
A Georgia native, Gia grew up studying under Jonnie Kelley at the Atlanta Dance Theater. Now based in New York City, she serves on the dance faculties of Lincoln Center Education’s Middle School Arts Bootcamp and Commercial Dance Intensive. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Dance from Hunter College.Follow her on Instagram.
