April 15 - 17, 2022

Oliviero Bifulco , a versatile dancer and choreographer in classical ballet and contemporary dance, comes to Casa de Ballet to give a unique Masterclass based on the differences and similarities of form and movement between the main techniques of academic dance. 

Dedicated to dancers with a minimum age of 12 years, this Masterclass fuses ballet and contemporary dance, explaining to students how they differ but how they can complement each other.

During the classes, Oliviero will teach both ballet and his more personal language, demonstrating how ballet can help in a more contemporary movement. His language has strong foundation in ballet, with the liberty of the different languages of modern dance.
