Along side 11 years of formation at the School of American Ballet, he attended the High School of Performing Arts and Professional Children’s School in New York, performing often with the New York City Ballet. At age 16, Noah became principal guest-artist with the American Ballet Company, dancing numerous principal roles from the Balanchine repertoire. He sang and danced in a New York production of ‘West Side Story’ before pursuing his career in Europe.  

After 3 years as a soloist with the Royal Ballet of Flanders, he toured the U.S. and Mexico as a principal guest-artist before William Forsythe invited him to the Frankfurt Ballet. Noah earned widespread critical acclaim for his speed, dynamism and technical precision, plus his ability to excel in the classical ballet genre as well as inspire contemporary choreographers. He now performs regularly in international Galas, dancing solos and pas de deux created especially for him by William Forsythe and other choreographers.

Over a decade of dancing with William Forsythe, he performed the greater portion of the Frankfurt Ballet’s repertoire, notably premiering in the original cast of “The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude”.

He is regularly invited to conduct educational workshops teaching these improvisation modalities at international institutions.

Noah was active in the choreographic processes at the Frankfurt Ballet, creating considerable solo and pas de deux material contained in some Forsythe pieces. He was the first American choreographer ever invited to create a world premier for the Kirov Ballet at the Mariinsky Theater. This story ballet, ‘The Overcoat’ (after Nikolai Gogol), won 2 ‘Golden Sofit’ awards including ‘Best Ballet of the Year’, and a ‘Golden Mask’ – Russia’s highest theatrical prize.
