The Gilded Serpent presents...

Glenn Schneider

One doesn't know exactly when and where Glenn was born, but legend has it that he rolled off the tailgate of a circus wagon in Transylvania and was found by a Scotch-German acrobat from Minnesota who was touring Europe in her Model-T Ford, trying to emulate the trips of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, but sometimes going astray.

In his extended career, he showed his diversity by performing in ballet, Spanish dance and stints at German opera houses. Having studied in various forms of dance in Berlin, San Francisco, Barcelona, New York, Madrid and Paris, he was successful in such a variety of roles as the Witch in Hansel and Gretel, Prince in Cinderella, Peter in Peter and the Wolf, a Cavalier in the Rose Adagio in Sleeping Beauty, the Snow King in The Nutcracker, a Root in Merry Wives of Windsor, and The Soldier in The Miraculous Mandarin, culminating in partnering the great Al Qahira in several Rakkasah Festival productions, as well as a "Tambourine Man" for Amaya -- and these, along with family ties, are his connection with the wonderful world of Danse du Ventre.
