Born in Italy in 1984, I began my dance training in Ascoli Piceno (Italy) with Elisa Silvestri. At 19, I entered Perugia University and completed my training at Centrodanza School. Between 2005 and 2007, I obtained a grant to study at the London Contemporary Dance School and another to follow the professional training in classical and contemporary at the Toscane Ballet directed by Cristina Bozzolini. From 2005 to 2008, I danced at the BDTJ Dance Company (Balletto di Toscana) in Mauro Bigonzetti, Eugenio Buratti, Eugenio Scigliano, Arianna Benedetti et Fabrizio Monteverde’s choreographies. In 2008, I was hired at the Balletto Teatro di Torino. I joined the Ballet National de Marseille in 2010.
