Originally from Italy, Paola started dancing when she was 6 years old. She started her training in Ballroom and Boogie Woogie / Rock'nd Roll styles doing competitions all around Italy. At the age of 14, she decided to concentrate on Jazz and Ballet at the main Dance School in her home town, Bologna.
In her 20's she moved to Rome to start her career as a professional dancer, where she worked for some of the best Italian Choreographers (such as Luca Tommassini, Mauro Mosconi, Manolo Casalino, Franco Miseria, Bill Goodson) and Italian celebrities ( the likes of Claudio Baglioni, Enrico Montesano, Luisa Corna, Gigi Sabani, Senit, amongst many others).
Later Paola made the decision to further her career and expand her horizon by moving to London where she worked as a dancer for Gabrielle, Kayne West, Ashely Wallen, Hege Okstad, Leona Lewis, Hugh Grant & Meryl Streep and many more.
As a Choreographer, she has choreographed for films, TV commercials, music videos, corporate events, private parties, TV shows, and live concerts. Her main strength is her versatility and technical dancer/choreography skills. Areas of expertise include technical and lyrical Jazz, Modern, House Dance, Street Dance, Latin & Salsa, House, 50's styles (Jive/Boogie Woggie & Rock and Roll) Tap.
