Early practice ... Born in Italy, Rebecca began her ballet training at the age of four at the Pavia Academy. At the age of 15, she took a big step forward when she was accepted into the famous Le Pôle National Supérieur de Danse (PNSD) in Cannes. Founded in 1961 by ballet legend Rosella Hightower, the PNSD remains one of today’s leading international dance schools. In their final year, PNSD students transfer to Cannes Jeune Ballet to gain stage experience under real-life conditions. Accordingly, in the 2022/23 season, Rebecca danced her way through a challenging repertoire that included pieces by Thierry Malandain, Carolyn Carlson, Renato Zanella, Filipe Portugal and Lukas Timulak. In the 2023/24 season, Rebecca became a member of the Gauthier Dance JUNIORS.
