Murillo Barbosa

Ballet • Contemporary

Born in Goiânia, Brazil, he moved to the U.S. at a young age. He trained many years in musical theatre before he started dance.  In search for more dance training for musical theatre, Murillo started dancing at a small Christian studio in Cartesville, GA, Steps of Faith Dance Studio, where he fell in love with the art form. Murillo then went on to receive most of his ballet training from the school of the Georgia Ballet.  Receiving the utmost training from Orlando Molina, Daet Rodriguez, Magit Peguero and Ashleyanne Hensley. Murillo has also received training from the Milwaukee Ballet and Oklahoma City Ballet.  

Murillo has had the opportunity to dance in many ballets such as Coppelia, The Nutcracker, Raymond, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, and Laquita.  In the 2016-2017 season, he danced as trainee with the Georgia Ballet, where he is now dancing professionally as a company member for the 2017-2018 season. He is happy to share his knowledge with the ALL STARS Performing Arts Academy students and looks forward to watching them grow in talent and inspiration to share their dreams with others.
