Do not dance serious, dance hilarious!

Hello dear,

Nice that you landed here!

I’m Ilaria, the tireless dance fairy, and I’ve been floating around in the magic dance world for what feels like an eternity. But wait a minute – not only is my body dancey, but so are my thoughts too!

I am a vibrant, active, pragmatic and coulorful individual, who loves movement in body and mind.

Get curious?

After leaving my sunny italian roots behind, I let the artistic whirlwind of Berlin seduce me and settled there after a three-years dance education in 2015.

In my early career I started as dancer, performer and choreographer. I got a hybrid education by participating in various training-programs in Bologna, Berlin, Brussels (a lot of Bs). Along the way, I completed a bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts in Rome. During that time I have worked with Die Kompanie, Ronnie Heller Dance Theatre and Leggere Strutture Dance Company, gaining valuable practical experience.

Since 2021, I have been teaching regularly and working on the administrative side of dance for the German Dance Association. At the same time, I am pursuing a master’s degree in Dance Studies at the Freie Universität of Berlin and taking my first steps as a dance dramaturge and rehearsals assistant.

And all this always with humor!


My work begins in the development phase of a piece. I analyze the script, research background information and work out a common vision for the production. During the rehearsal phase, I work closely with the dancer(s) to strengthen the dramaturgical structure of their project. I give feedbacks, assist the rehearsals and help to design the set. As a dramaturge, I combine creative thinking, analytical understanding and choreographic knowledge. Besides that, I offer translations in German/English/Italian, proofreading and text-editing and general assistance in creating interdisciplinary projects.


The class is a physical journey of discovery with an attentive focus on physical presence, spatial constitution, social environment and mental state. After a basic warm-up, a playful session begins that includes improvisational movement scores and various elements from a contemporary dance background. Dancers are encouraged to try new movement qualities and through improvisational exercises, discover a variety of physical possibilities.


I am active in the dance field in different ways. I draw inspiration from books, poetry, hilarious comedy acts, old French movies, animals, and philosophy. Dance has played a crucial role in my personal journey of healing and overcoming existential fears. I'm always searching for fresh approaches to movement that promote inner relief, forgiveness, and openness. I practice instant composition, contact improviation, Yoga, Calisthenics, In-line skating.
