About the Fund

The Gabrielle Noa-Abbate Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Gabrielle Noa-Abbate, who graced the stage as a principal dancer for New Jersey Ballet Company where she later became a repertory coach. She also inspired countless students at NJ School of Ballet as a beloved instructor.


Mrs. Noa-Abbate was a role model to her students and the professional dancers she coached and danced beside. She was dedicated to the art form and always strived for excellence and expected the same from those around her. The scholarship fund will distribute awards to those who meet the Scholarship Fund’s criteria.
