Ballet dancer accused of sexual misconduct marries boyfriend

Marcelo Gomes — the veteran American Ballet Theatre dancer who resigned in December after an allegation of sexual misconduct was made against him — has married his boyfriend, Nicholas Palmquist, Page Six has exclusively learned.

Interestingly, a number of ABT stars, including principal ballerinas Stella Abrera and Gillian Murphy, soloist Blaine Hoven, and former principals Ethan Stiefel and Julie Kent, attended the nuptials in Quogue, LI.

We’re told that the couple met while Gomes was choreographing dancers — including Palmquist — at the Broadway Dance Lab.

The duo got engaged three months ago.

The newlyweds will be touring together in “Sleeping Beauty Dreams,” which will be in New York Dec. 14 and 15.

Gomes voluntarily quit ABT, after 20 years with the company, amid an investigation into an incident of alleged misconduct unrelated to his employment, which was claimed to have happened eight years prior.

The theater called the allegations “highly concerning,” but no other details were made public.
