“There is an extraordinary rainbow of feelings that you can express through your dance…. an ocean of emotions and vibrations. This is the great power in your hands, dancer! … Use it wisely!”

Cinzia has recently become Mom, And is now pregnant again…

“Motherhood has made my body stronger and my mind incredibly creative… I feel a world of new feelings to show and play with on the stage! It’s pure magic!❤️“

“ Dance is something different to each of us. To me it represents an alternative way of living my life. The most authentic, the most natural…. I don’t dance to demonstrate … I don’t dance just to dance … ….I dance to be… belong and ….. become! (…) It is as if I could visualize those feelings through each part of my body and each dancing figure, truly connecting with them … It has always been like this to me… it’s the way I dance, the way I teach….and I hope it will always be!❤️“

“Forget who you are, break all your emotional chains and let your soul speak! Dance like a queen but welcome your weaknesses as well since they are part of you! … Then, you will be able to feel your true self and dance truthfully”

Classes are in English and are recorded, so students can buy and watch them whenever they want. 

Each month students can check the schedule on her fb page and Instagram.
