As a dancer, Victor began his professional career with as an original member of Ballet Florida under Marie Hale. After a few seasons in the traditional dance world he realized his physical limitations would need some creative thinking if he were to continue in the classical dance world. He loved classical dance but was too small to work in a traditional company. Comedy ballet was the only way to have a career in ballet.

The opportunity to travel and experience other cultures was also a great lure to make the daunting switch to comedy. After performing, Trevino discover he loved the immediate interaction with the audience. The opportunity to engage with a live audience and to get them to laugh and applaud was an incredible feeling. This led to a ten year career with Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo where he danced the leads in most of their repertoire.

His performing career continued with Les Ballets Grandiva and currently with Ballet Eloelle (LOL), which has given him the incredible opportunity to dance most of the great female leads such as Odette, Odile, Giselle, Kitri, Aurora, Sugar Plum Fairy, Juliet and Carmen. Mr. Trevino still enjoys the laughter of a live audience and is thrilled to be able to continue to contribute to the international dance community.

He is now the oldest professional male ballerina in the world and sees his life as a parody of many of the great ballerinas who performed into their “mature” years.  He invites you to take advantage of seeing him live on stage while he can still get up on his toes for your pleasure.
