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.
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.
