“I started dancing when I was 11,” says Khris J. Santos, “because instead of physical education, we had folk dancing.” He never stopped. Now 19 and originally from Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, Santos joins Cincinnati Ballet as a CBII. Santos’s favorite ballet is Swan Lake, and if he could dance in any ballet, he would choose The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude by the famed William Forsythe. Santos’s favorite personal dancing memory is dancing in Le Corsaire at his graduation. He looks forward to learning new repertoire and expanding his stylistic knowledge with Cincinnati Ballet.
Fun Fact: Khris’s favorite cuisine is Italian
