Thiago Dos Santos
Dancer, Actor
“Balanced is overrated. Forget about being balanced and work on being present.””
– Michael Gervais

Originally from Brazil, Thiago immigrated to Canada to pursue a career in dance. He performed with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet for nine seasons with whom he toured North America, Europe, China and Israel. Highlights have been working with Twyla Tharp, James Kudelka and Evelyn Hart as well as dancing in The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Giselle and in Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude.

Upon retirement from the ballet, he has worked on Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block as the Meat Servant, and most recently has appeared in Burden Of Truth (Season 2).

“Although I could say much about the dancers, I’ll stick to just a few here. I couldn’t get enough of Thiago Dos Santos as the Drosselmeier (her Godfather). His grandiose performance kept everyone in line and really stole the show for me” – The Review Weekly, Vancouver
