“I started dancing when I was 11,” says Santos, “because instead of physical education, we had folk dancing.” He never stopped. Originally from Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, Santos joined Cincinnati Ballet in The Second Company for the 1314 Season, was promoted to Apprentice for the 1415 Season and New Dancer for 1516. 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 enjoys learning new repertoire and expanding his stylistic knowledge with Cincinnati Ballet.

Fun fact: “I enjoy writing poetry!”
