Made in the Philippines, Reynaldo Junior Santos recently graduated from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and has also trained with Central School of Ballet, Ballet Black Associates, and at the London Contemporary Dance School’s CAT Programme.
Reynaldo has performed repertoire and worked with a variety of well established choreographers and artists including: Lea Anderson, Gary Clarke, Douglas Thorpe, Joseph Mercier, Amaury Lebrun, Marivi Da Silva, Ivan Perez, Nataša Živković, Phil Sanger, Sade and Kritina Alleyne, Pierre Tappon, Richard Alston, Regina Wielingen, Andrej Petrovic, and Akram Khan. In 2018 Reynaldo was also involved in the Performing Gender programme where he was involved in a research and development week led by Nataša Živković and Tanya Steinhauser. He also had the pleasure of premiering original creations ‘How To Do Stuff’ by Lea Anderson, ‘Left Unseen’ by Amaury Lebrun and ‘The Rashomon Effect’ by Akram Khan. But enjoys nothing more than a cup of fresh brewed coffee, with a salted caramel cake (any type will do) on a peaceful rainy day.
In the year ahead, Reynaldo is most excited to move again in a space filled with others who share the same passion for dance, but nothing excites him more than to be able to spread his wings and rise like a Phoenix.
