In 2001 she merged her company with Balletto di Roma and Balletto di Toscana, becoming the resident choreographer of the new company. Her first creation for the new Balletto di Roma has been the “Don Quixote” with music by A. Vivaldi and M. Schiavoni, for which she worked on the plot, the direction and the choreography; the performance was broadcasted in its fullness on the Rai 5 television channel as the best Italian opera ballet for 2014. She later created for Balletto di Roma many performances, such as the recent “Contemporary Tango” and “Futura, dancing with Lucio”. From 1997 to 2011 she consistently worked as a guest contemporary dance teacher as well as an author with the School of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma managed by Elisabetta Terabust and later by Paola Jorio.
