VENARIA REALE / dancer / 2011
I started dancing modern in 2001 when I was 5, but it was a short experience since I had to stop for personal reasons. Still, I already knew it was my passion, moving my body on the music made me feel a shaking, a vibration, a connection I will never forget. I can date to then my first freestyle. For several years I used to dance only in my room or at parties, feeling the same vibration. Then, once, in 2011, my mother told me there was a course of Hip Hop near home. I was playing volleyball at the time, but I decided to attend it. It was like a flash, love at first sight. I met my first teacher, and I am still grateful to him, it was my place. At that time, I was also suffering from food disorders and discovering dance, hip hop music and culture saved me. Then in 2016 I took the next step and decided I wanted to transform it into a profession, I wanted to be a dancer and I started practicing daily.
