Tino Sauter is a 17 year old boy raised in Galax, VA. He left home at 15 to start his serious training to become a professional ballet dancer at The Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts in Torrington, CT. His dream as many of you know is to be a professional dancer, and he is well on his way!
He began dancing at age 14 In Galax, VA at The Conservatory of Dance and Theatre under the Direction of Barbara Johnson. He excelled there and quickly moved up into the oldest and hardest class where he fell in love with the art of ballet. He has received many scholarships to many different schools around the country such as: The Rock School for Dance Education, UNCSA, Joffrey ballet school, Kirov Academy of Ballet, American Repertory ballet, Valentina Kozlava Dance Conservatory of NYC, and many more. He often comes back to his town of Galax, VA as a guest artist.
He is currently commuting almost every weekend to NYC for company auditions. These auditions are the auditions that will accept him into companies worldwide. Getting into a company and signing a contract means that you are a paid professional dancer. These auditions get very expensive because of the Commuting by train to NYC, meals, Audition fees, and Subway fare.
