His Dance Company, Paco Gomes and Dancers founded in 2004, has performed in various venues throughout the Bay Area and Bahia, Brazil.
In 2007 he was nominated for the Choreography Award for the Bay Area Dance Awards with 'The Red Scarf', a work choreographed by Paco Gomes and performed by his dance company Paco Gomes and Dancers.
Paco gomes is known for his ability to infuse the dynamic, multifaceted potential of modern dance with Afro-Brazilian folkloric dance, more specifically, the religious movements of the Orixa dances, the athleticism of Capoiera, and the folkloric working dances from slavery. With this unique blend of influences Paco Gomes practices storytelling primarily through the myths and legends of the Candomble religion of Brazil. Paco Gomes and his visionary works create a bridge both between dance as 'high art' and dance as a rich cultural heritage and between people everywhere.
