Gabby began her training locally and entered New Jersey School of Ballet at the age of 8. At 11, she performed the coveted role of Clara in New Jersey Ballet's Nutcracker at Paper Mill—one of the youngest ever to dance the role. Mrs. Noa-Pierson was a scholarship student at the Pennsylvania Ballet, and returned to New Jersey and NJ Ballet in 1999. Her repertory includes Gretel in Hansel and Gretel, roles in Allegro Brilliante, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Tango, For Ella, Saturday Night, and the Cowgirl in deMille’s Rodeo.
