Accolades and cheers:
"The more the days go by, the more I feel it was like
a dream that we were dancing in Castiglioncello. I love dancing. I love it even
more after dancing in Italy."
TOMOKO KAMIMURA, Webster University.
"My experience at Pro Danza Italia/USA gave a jumpstart
to my teaching, and invigorated me as an artist, choreographer and performer.
What a privilege it was to begin and end everyday with dance and use the time
in between to enjoy the spectacular countryside in italy. The teachers brought
depth and unique perspective to their classes, and the other dancers brought variety
from around the world. I will look back on this program with great fondness and

Department of the Chapin School, New York City
'This was by far the best summer of my life, without exaggeration... Thank
FAYE Yvette McQUEEN, dancer and dancer teacher, Atlanta, Georgia
The most fulfilling experience I have ever had both in dance
and for me personally. I have attended workshops with numerous well-known dance
companies, who may deliver when it come to technical training, but the personal
touch is nonexistent."
SARANDON CASSIDY, professional dancer, Los Angeles, CA.
"Un esperienza indimenticabile per un'italiana abituata
ad altri metodi di lavoro nella danza, forse altrettanto validi, ma nei quali
manca questo senso del gruppo, questa gioia di danza insieme, e soprattutto quell'energia
positiva che e' uno stimolo per ogni danzatore a qualunque livello a migliorarsi,
a confrontarsi, a dare meglio di se' e ad esprimersi pienamente. Arrivederci a
SABRINA PAOLETTI, dancer, choreographer & teacher, Danza Viva, Novara, Italy
