Su di me
I was born in 1989 in Bari (Italy) where I started to study ballet and modern dance at the age of nine years old. I continued my studies in contemporary and classical dance in Florence and in Rome until 2007 , when I started to work as a professional dancer.
In the same year, I began my studies in Psychology and furthered my experience as a dance teacher, mostly focusing on working with children and, thanks to the experience with “Danceability”, also with the disabled.
In 2015, I moved to Berlin, where, besides enriching my dance career, I realized that dancing with the only purpose of performing was not enough, thus, I decided to continue my studies in Psychology by undertaking a Masters course in Dance Movement Therapy in 2017, at the “Art Therapy Italiana” in Bologna, ending in 2021. During this time, I lead many projects as a Dance Movement Therapist intern in different schools, kindergartens and associations in Berlin.
From October 2021 until April 2023 I worked as a Movement Therapist at the Friedrich von Bodelschwingh Klinik, a clinic for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, in Berlin. I am currently working as a Dance Movement Therapist at the psychiatric clinic “MHI- Mental Health Institute”, where I started in August 2022 and at the “Besondere Wohnformen – Unionhilfswerk” (assisted living for people with chronic psychiatric disorders).
I collaborate as a freelance dance therapist with different associations. Some of these are:
