trained in classical ballet from age 7
in Rio de Janeiro "
From the age of 7, I trained in classical ballet at the Maria Olenewa State School of Dance in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil's main dance conservatoire (Vaganova style).
After graduating with a corps-de-ballet and teaching Diploma, I joined the main company for several seasons of famous ballets including Swan Lake, Eugene Onegin, La Bayadere, and a national tour of The Nutcracker, as well as dancing in Operas, national soap operas and Brazil's professional Carnival parades.
Upon moving to the UK, I further developed my skills in teaching other dance styles such as Jazz, Contemporary, Street Dance and Tap, and am currently in the process of registering with the Royal Academy of Dance as a certified teacher - as well as certifications in Progressing Ballet Technique, Pilates and IDTA!
