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

Originally from Brazil, Thiago Dos Santos moved to Canada in 2007 after receiving a full scholarship to train at Pacific Dance Arts in Vancouver, BC. In 2008, Thiago started his professional dance career at Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, where he toured across North America, Europe, China, and Israel. Highlights have been working with Twyla Tharp, James Kudelka and Evelyn Hart as well as performing in The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Giselle, Romeo & Juliet, and Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude.

After a decade with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Thiago transitioned his talents to TV and Film. He has worked on Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block as the Meat Servant, and Burden Of Truth (Season 2). Most recently he has worked with choreographer Roberto Campanella, directors Andy Muschietti in IT: Chapter 2, and Taika Waititi in What We Do In The Shadows (TV series).

“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.
