In this season

Isabelle approached dance in a little school in the countryside at the age of 7. Here she regularly attended workshops with Kathryn Bradney and Igor Piovano, former principal dancers of Béjart Ballet. She also took different levels of RAD examinations, obtaining always the highest evaluations. In 2016 she was finalist at the International Dance Competition of Spoleto. After finishing her school studies she had the opportunity to work with the Bellini Junior Ballet in Catania (Italy), for the season 2017/2018. There, she danced extracts from Swan Lake, including the role of Odette and the Four Little Swans. She also took part in a musical production. In 2019 she approached for the first time contemporary dance, joining the Eko Dance International Project in Turin, founded and directed by Pompea Santoro, one of the closest Mats Ek’s assistant. Here, she had the chance to study and perform extracts from Mats Ek repertoire and to work with different choreographers fortifying her contemporary dance skills. The same year she was selected for the Roberto Bolle’s workshop OnDance, having the opportunity to study and then perform in the final show. In 2021 she entered the Eko Dance Company dancing many different pieces: Mats Ek repertoire, including Giselle, the Green Fairy in ‘Sleeping Beauty’ , the Stone in ‘Pa Norrbotten’ and ‘Swan Lake’; Jorma Elo’s ‘Over Glow’; and new creations with many different choreographers such as: Ken Ossola, Fernando Suels Mendoza, Paolo Mohovic, Giovanni Insaudo, Pedro Lozano Gomez, Francesca Frassinelli, Eva Calanni and Cristina Golin. In autumn 2021 she was selected by Simona Soledad for her project ‘The Dancing Truck’, an openair performance in a square of Genova. In 2022 she was part of the Production ‘Passion in Balance’, produced by BalletXtreme directed by Myrna Kamara, where she danced in Paolo Mohovic’s choreography ‘Piece of Love and Suspition’. In 2023 she danced as a guest dancer for the Landestheater Detmold, in the production of ‘Schwanensee’, choreography of Katharina Torwesten.
