Lorella Formica
Born in Milan on 12/6/1961, she graduated from the Teatro alla Scala in Milan in 1980.
The professional philosophy
With regard to her role, she does not stand exclusively as a teacher who passes on the culture, tradition and technique of classical ballet, but also as an educator, with a holistic vision that considers each student in his totality and uniqueness, taking care to accompany him to the discovery and awareness of his potential and his talents, helping him with participation, understanding, determination, firmness, gentleness and love to his own realization in a circularity that sees its own realization in the realization of the other.
The training course contains in its completion a series of didactic-technical, cultural, pedagogical, educational, ethical-moral contents that make it a highly significant baggage both for the technical-artistic training and for the evolutionary path of each student. These are universal aspects that can be applied in every area and circumstance of life, including: discipline, self-discipline, respect for oneself and for others, taking responsibility and taking responsibility towards others, sharing, participation, tenacity, constancy, patience, determination, attention, listening, trust and self-esteem.
The professional path
From 1980 to 1989 he was part of the corps de ballet of the same Theater, also supporting solo roles.
In these years he participated in numerous international tours, dancing in the most prestigious theaters in the world and working with world-famous choreographers and dancers (Carla Fracci, Rudolf Nureyev, Paolo Bortotoluzzi, Luciana Savignano, Julio Bocca, Margot Fontaine etc.).
From 1990 to 1992 he danced as a soloist in David Sutherland’s company.
His teaching career began in 1981. He teaches in various and prestigious schools in Milan and the province; over the years he has gained a great deal of experience in teaching Classical Dance at all levels: amateur for children and adults, academics and professionals.
From 1998 to 2000 he taught at the S.P.I.D. (Scuola Professionale Italiana Danza), followed courses for children aged four to thirteen and private lessons.
From 2000 to 2003 he taught at the M.A.S. , where she attended courses for professionals and amateurs and classic at all levels. In addition, she held the role of teacher of the TV Show Academy.
Since 2004 she has been the Artistic Director of the Dance Academy of the Palestra Azzurra School. She is responsible for the whole academic and amateur classical sector.
Sensitive to the evolutionary and psychological aspect of the student and to acquire further tools to support and accompany the children in their didactic-educational path, since 2011 he has undertaken a training course as a consultant in Biotrancenergetics, which allows him to add depth to his teaching.
Since 2016 she has been the Artistic Director of the new ENTRY MAS project in the prestigious Milanese school MAS, a pre-academic path dedicated to children aged 9 to 13 with high educational and training depth.
As a further qualification of the already solid professional background based on a long teaching experience at all levels, in June 2009 he obtained a prestigious and exclusive Certificate of specialization and merit in teaching classical academic dance issued by the Academy of the La Scala Theater of Milan.
Title acquired in a two-year training course, with access, following a limited number of competitions, reserved exclusively for teachers who already have a qualified dance diploma.
