Tom Pardoe



Originally from Iowa, Tom started dancing at Miss Dorothy Buckwald’s studio, held in the basement of her home.
Forever grateful. He studied with Francoise Martinet at the University of Iowa before venturing to Chicago to dance at Gus Giordano’s in the 80’s, just as MTV was breaking onto the scene. Continuing in Musical Theater at PCPA Theaterest, then earning his BFA in Acting at The Theater School at De Paul University. Broadway credits includeMiss Saigon and Beauty and the Beast, Carnegie Hall with Betty Buckley, A Christmas Carol at MSG and The Tony Awards. Television brought Time of Your Life, The Drew Carey Show and many others. After a 15 year sabbatical, Tom is back on the boards thanks to Bill Prudich, and is looking forward to more relevant projects like Arcade Fire (We Exist) and Code Black.
