Sergio Masero is from Madrid, Spain and began his training at the Real Conservatorio Profesional de Danza Mariemma. He continued his training on scholarship at San Francisco Ballet School. Sergio then joined Ballet Memphis where he performed lead roles, such as Romeo in Steven McMahon’s Romeo & Juliet, Swan Lake; Matthew Neenan’s Water of the Flowery Mill; and in works by Mark Godden, Gabrielle Lamb, and Joshua Pugh. Since joining Atlanta Ballet, Sergio has performed principal roles such as Basilio in Yuri Possokhov’s Don Quixote; James in Johan Kobborg’s La Sylphide; and the Nutcracker Prince in the world premiere of Yuri Possokhov’s The Nutcracker.
He’s also been featured in ballets by Helgi Tomasson, Stanton Welch, Mark Morris, and Craig Davidson, among others. Aside from dancing, Masero enjoys the world of choreography. He created two pieces on his colleagues at Ballet Memphis and two full-length productions for the Dance Academy of Bartlett, in Tennessee. After the success of his first creation for Atlanta Ballet’s Silver Lining program, Teneo Integrum, he was commissioned to create another piece. Schubertiada, a piece that featured an all-male corps de ballet, debuted in May of 2022 to great acclaim.
