Nick Raynor is a NYC based actor, singer, dancer.
Nick grew up in New Jersey and began singing when he was eleven years old. He expressed a passion for the arts and quickly immersed himself into performing during middle school and high school. There he performed in school plays and was a member of New Jersey's Region, All-State, and All-Eastern Choirs for multiple years. He even spent a summer traveling and singing through Europe with the American Music Abroad Voices Tour.
He began to dance at the age of seventeen and found true love through abstract movements. He enrolled in contemporary and ballet classes with Icon Dance Complex, which has had dancers featured twice on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew.
Over the years Nick has had many wonderful opportunities and experiences. He was a semi-finalist on Oxygen's hit reality TV show, The Glee Project (season 1). In 2011, he
performed in Hairspray with Plays in the Park. He has grown as an artist by performing regionally at the Gateway Playhouse, Ogunquit Playhouse, & Ivoryton Playhouse. He has also been fortunate enough to tour the United States and internationally with A Chorus Line, Guys and Dolls, The Producers, and West Side Story (INT.).
Nick is a graduate from Mason Gross School of the Arts and received his B.M. in vocal performance with a minor in dance. Performing is his passion - whether it be singing, dancing, acting, or modeling. Once Nick steps onto the stage he is over-whelmed with a pure sense of happiness. He loves to put smiles on people's faces and enjoys having an audience whenever possible. It is his dream to express this enlightened state to the world.
Working in the "real world" is a scary yet exciting time in Nick's life. He wants to send many thanks to his beloved family and friends. Without this huge support base, he would never have accomplished his many dreams of performing around the world!
