Gabe Stone Shayer was born in 1993 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He began taking dance classes when he was only 11 years old.

At 13, he was offered the lead role in the ballet Darfur, organized by the Rebecca Davis Dance Company. The success of the performance led to him going on many tours throughout the country.

He began to train full-time as a dancer when he turned 14.

Honing his crafts with famous artists and instructors, Gabe placed in the top twelve finalists in the Senior Category at the Youth America Grand Prix International in 2009.

He also participated in many other competitions during this period and worked with many dance schools.

Notably, Gabe was the first African-American male dancer to graduate from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in over 250 years of the school’s history.
