Originally from Joinville, Brazil, Nicolas Scheuer joined Nashville Ballet as an apprentice in 2012.

Scheuer began his ballet studies at the Bolshoi Theatre School of Brazil, affiliated with the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia.

During his eight years as a student at the Bolshoi Theatre School of Brazil, he had the opportunity to learn and perform notable works such as the pas de deux from Swan Lake and Les Corsaire.

Scheuer took the skills he learned from the Bolshoi to Boston Ballet School, where he continued his dance education and performed alongside Boston Ballet’s company in large-scale productions such as The Nutcracker, La Bayadere and Romeo and Juliet.

After two years at Boston Ballet School, he began his full-time performance career at the New English Ballet Theater in London, where he took on roles in Classical SymphonyResolution and Le Carnaval de Verites.

Since joining Nashville Ballet in 2012, he has performed lead roles in Nashville Ballet Artistic Director & CEO Paul Vasterling's Nashville's Nutcracker, Benno in Swan Lake, John Darling in Vasterling's Peter Pan, the Waltz Man in George Balanchine's Serenade and the title role in Afternoon of a Faun by Salvatore Aiello.

Most recently, Scheuer brought his talent for classical ballet to the 2016 International Ballet Competition in Varna, Bulgaria, the world’s largest ballet competition.
