Valerio Pino

TV Personality – Model – Professional dancer

39 year old professional dancer and model Valerio Pino has been passionate about dance from the day he was born. At the age of eight he joined a dance school in his home province in Italy and continued his training there until aged fifteen, when he moved to Rome to join the National Dance Academy. At eighteen he began working as a dancer for variety programs across Italian television channels. He has spent his adult life working at home in Italy and internationally ever since. Valerio began his career as a model on the Milan catwalks for Valentino and other designers. In recent years he has combined his work as a TV dancer, model, TV presenter, choreographer and dance teacher.

Biography

Valerio starred on Spanish television as a catwalk coach in the ‘Supermodel 2006’ TV show (Spanish version of the AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL format) and as a contestant on the reality TV show ‘Supervivientes, Perdidos en Honduras’ (Spanish version of the SURVIVOR Reality Show format) . He has also worked as a model on different advertising campaigns on television -following his success on ‘Supermodelo 2007’, the well-known Spanish retailer El Corte Inglés chose Valerio for their Christmas and New Year’s TV advertising campaign. There are also high expectations for the FAO gala of the tv show ‘Mira Quien Baila’, which only serves to reaffirm his success in Spain. In 2008, Valerio went on to become a collaborator on the ‘Channel nº4’, TV show and participated in shows like ‘Pasapalabra’ or ‘Clever’. Following a well-earned vacation, Valerio returned to our TV screens with the great Ana Rosa Quintana as collaborator of the ‘AR program’ and ‘El programa del verano’. In January 2010 Valerio returned to Rome as principal dancer at AMICI until the end of March. AMICI is a very famous talent show on Canal 5 filmed in Rome (Italian version of the ‘ SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE’ format). In the intermediate period after his triumph at AMICI, Valerio worked as a commentator on the magazine show ‘Salvame’ for a couple of months. He subsequently spent three months in New York to further his English and perfect his dance technique. Valerio also works as an ambassador for the charity project ‘Child to Child Art’. This solidarity-driven group based in Barcelona collaborates with the CODESPA foundation, and uses art work created by children in its centres to help schoolchildren in Peru.


By Autumn 2010 Valerio was working between Spain and Italy. He worked on the programme ‘Salvame’ again as a daily contributor and also participated on shows such as ‘La Noria, ¿Dónde estás corazón?’, and ‘De buena Ley’, all filmed in Spain. He has worked on Italian works such as ‘Se a casa de Paola’, ‘Interno138’, ‘Nientology’ in Italy as well as being interviewed for numerous magazines in both countries. As 2010 drew to a close Valerio became the presenter and choreographer of Spanish channel Telecinco’s Pantene Hair Movement contest. In early 2011 Valerio participated in the Festival of San Remo in Italy as a principal dancer. He ends the year with the opening of his own dance school, the Cosenza Dance Center, a project created with the help of his beloved family. In 2012 Valerio began work with several US modelling agencies in Miami and New York. Agencies included the likes of Mega Model and Green Agency. He also worked as an actor in Miami starring in Telenovela’s soap opera ‘Made in Manhattan’. In 2013 Valerio moved to South America to begin exciting work opportunities in Mexico. During his time there he worked as a host for a Yamamay event opening, a host for Fashion TV and as a coach for channel TV Azteca’s Talent Show ‘Academia Kids’. In June 2013 Valerio visited his homeland once again to work as art director at his dance school in Cosenza, Calabria where he created his show ‘Emozioni’.
