Aside from his acting, he’s also gained a bit of fame from his dancing work, and as he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Colt’s life prior to his rise to fame as a dancer and actor. He has not revealed a lot of details regarding his family and his childhood, but it is known that he grew up in Georgia alongside a brother. Both of his parents worked as police officers, but he didn’t pursue the same career, opting instead for a career in the performing arts.
After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at the University of Cincinnati (UC). It is a public research university founded in 1819 and is the oldest institution of higher education in Ohio. It has an annual enrollment of over 44,000 students, making it the second largest in the state, and is a member of the University System of Ohio. The 2019 US News & World Report Rankings list, UC was the 189th best university and the 147th national university, while being the 75th best university in the US. They have 14 colleges and schools, including the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, and the College of Nursing.
After graduating, Prattes started trying to gain entry into the entertainment industry as a singer, but it didn’t pan out, so he switched to dancing and later focused on ballet performances. He was mainly out of the spotlight until he was cast in the ABC remake of “Dirty Dancing”, in which he played Johnny Castle played in the film by Patrick Swayze. The television film was aired in 2017 and directed by Wayne Blair, and stars him alongside Abigail Breslin, Debra Messing, Bruce Greenwood, Nicole Scherzinger, and Sarah Hyland.
The movie was seen by 6.61 million viewers and reached a 1.4 Nielsen rating in the 18 to 49 age demographic. However, the film received mostly negative reviews, with most of the positive comments only going Scherzinger’s way as she had a great performance in the movie. Filming was done mostly in North Carolina, with people living in Hendersonville serving as most of the extras, crew members, and dancers. The film concept was already pitched in 2011, but was shelved before ABC decided to create the remake.
Aside from his acting endeavors, Colt has also done a lot of dancing projects, which have also given him television exposure. He has danced at the “MTV Video Music Awards”, which is an annual awards show originally conceived to be an alternative to the Grammy Awards video category, but later became highly popular among teens and those in their 20s. He has also worked on theatre productions including a role in “Rock of Ages”, a musical built around classic rock songs from the ‘80s, taken from popular glam rock bands during the decade. Some include those from Bon Jovi, Poison, and Twisted Sister.
