Event: ŻfinMalta is hosting a Ballet & Repertoire intensives!
Dates: Saturday 2 September 2023 and Sunday 3 September 2023
Time: 10:00 - 13:00
Venue: ZfinMalta Studios, Valletta
This September, ŻfinMalta is hosting the first dance intensive of the season. ŻfinMalta has the pleasure hosting Alessandro Bigonzetti on our shores, where he will lead three hour ballet classes and repertoire training sessions for participants from 10 years old and older.
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 specialisation 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 will be leading 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. Places can be booked online.
