WHY BALLET

Ballet is a very enriching experience for mind, body and spirit and it trains them to work in harmony.
While the music takes you into an emotional dimension, allowing you to explore your expressive side,
the brain is trained to concentrate and take instructions to execute steps to music.
This improves your concentration, memory and confidence.
Rigorous ballet technique improves your posture and balance, making the muscles leaner,
strengthening the feet and core muscles and building stamina,
while making you more flexible and graceful.

For me, as a teacher, it is a joy to help people discover their abilities
and realize their potential as dancers, whether they are beginners or advanced students.
My classes aim to inspire ballet lovers to experience for themselves the joy of dance
in an encouraging and friendly environment, with the invaluable inspiration of live piano music.

THE TEAM

I was born and educated in Italy, where I trained in Ballet and Contemporary Dance at Teatro Nuovo in Turin with Carla Perotti and Renata Justino.
I performed and choreographed, participating in various Dance Festivals, such as Vignale Danza and Torino Danza. In the early 90’s I moved to London and I continued my ballet training with Anna du Boisson, Mark Silver and Roger Tully. I qualified as a professional ballet teacher at the Royal Academy of Dance, studying with Holly Price. Alongside my independent adult ballet classes in Notting Hill, I am also a guest teacher in various children ballet schools in Italy and at the West London School of Dance.

Working with excellent musicians brings to life the dancing experience and creates an exciting atmosphere in class. In my teaching, I give absolute priority to musicality, therefore I love working with a team of very experienced and inspiring musicians, such as Javier Ferrero, Igor Mukhortov, Graeme Thewlis, Morgan Hayes and Nathan Tinker. They give us so much with their music, in their own individual way and the students feel they have to give their absolute best to interpret their music.
This is wonderful to watch!
