‎Alessandro Bigonzetti ŻfinMalta ballet intensive

Saturday 2nd September


14+ years:

ŻfinMalta Studios, Valletta






ŻfinMalta Dance Intensives are curated as themed experiences, focusing on a particular movement technique, and exposing participants to commissioned guest teachers who contribute to company dancers’ training. Intensives are best experienced in their entirety through package offers, however drop-in sessions are also up for grabs for a taster of the whole experience. 


ŻfinMalta is hosting the first dance intensive for the season with Alessandro Bigonzetti! Having the pleasure of hosting his expertise on our shores, The national Dance Company is happy to host participants from 10 years old, who can benefit from a 3 hour ballet class and repertoire training with Alessandro Bigonzetti.





Currently a teacher and choreographer at Teatro dell’Opera in Rome, Alessandro Bigonzetti graduated in 1987 from the same theatre school and subsequently attended a specialization course in Reggio Emilia, dancing in Aterballetto productions. His career as a dancer continued with the Tuscan Ballet Company at the Teatro Comunale in Florence, the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome and at the Teatro Alla Scala in Milan.  Bigonzetti works as a ballet master at Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Arena di Verona and at Teatro San Carlo di Napoli.  

Alessandro leads sessions with participants from two age groups through a ballet class followed by a repertoire session accompanied by a live pianist.  Adults who seek to benefit from this intense training may apply for the 14+ class.
