Momo Sanno Peter






Momo Sanno Peter is a professional dancer and choreographer. In his works, he crosses over performing genres integrating multiple dance styles and techniques. His style of dance is contemporary infused with elements from international folk dancing.  He likes the challenge of harmoniously combining various types of movement and philosophy into choreography.

He considers this space as a platform where he can share a part of his life. A place through which he can get in contact with people from distant lands when he is not travelling. There you will find an echo of his work. However, prefers to meet people face to face, to connect without an interface that is only an image of our thoughts and actions… 

He was born in Romania where he started his classical training at “Dimitrie Cuclin” School of the Arts and later graduated from ,,Floria Capsali” School of Choreography in Bucharest.

His international career started after graduation from John Cranko Dance Academy in Stuttgart, Germany, when he was invited to dance in the worldwide acclaimed Tony Awarded Musical Disney’s “The Lion King” in Hamburg and later in Scheveningen, The Netherlands.

After a successful collaboration, he joined Garth Fagan Dance Company in the United States with which he had traveled and performed extensively.

In his desire to explore different approaches to dance and to enrich his dance experience in 2006 he started various international dance collaborations as an independent dancer and choreographer in the USA, Brazil, Jamaica, Haiti and Europe. He currently resides in Romania where he creates, teaches and continues performing.
