CARLOS RENEDO is from Barcelona, Spain. He has danced in several musicals like Mamma Mia! and Victor Victoria. Carlos has performed in the Belgian opera productions La Traviatta and Nabucco, and has appeared on TV shows, including Disney Channel. He lives in New York City since 2008 where has had the chance to work with some of the most important choreographs, and has danced at The Metropolitan Opera House for three seasons in the productions of Les Contes d’Hoffmann and Madama Butterfly. He joined Les Ballets Trockadero in 2011, a ballet company that travels the world with a comedy ballet show.

If you have any question please get in touch. Please do spread the word about this exciting opportunity – it isn’t often we get such talented individuals visiting our country! It’s a great chance for our students to be inspired by experienced dancers and also the opportunity for Carlos and Chase to see what our dancers are made of! It will be an inspiring series of workshops for all!
