Hometown:

What I do in my spare time:

I read, listen to music, watch tv series and films of all types. I spend time on my other great pasions that are visual effects, photo-video editing, webmaster and studying programming.

Favorite movie:

One of my favourite films is “Million Dollar Baby” directed and starring Clint Eastwood.

Favorite dance role:

I love all Jiri Kylian’s choreographies in particular “Petite Mort”. In future I would like to dance Roland Petit’s choreography “Le Jeune Homme et La Mort”.

Favorite vacation place:

I have travelled a lot so I really can’t decide…for several reasons I love Australia and Spain in particular.

Why I dance:

Well…good question. Becoming a ballet dancer isn’t something I chose, it happened and that’s it. At the age of six I asked my parents to enroll me in a dance school and I have loved dancing ever since, putting myself every day next to a bar has become a fundamental part of my life. It’s not necessarily something that I long for every day, it’s more of a need, like breathing – you can hold your breath for a few seconds, maybe minutes, but then your lungs really need some oxygen. Dance is like that for me, it’s part of my life, it’s my companion at both joyful and difficult times, it is always with me…
