About

LAURA LONGATO ARAD CBTS RTS

 

Born in Padova, Italy, I started dancing at the age of 8 years old.

From 1991-2003 I continued my studies and received my diploma Advanced 2 from the Royal Academy of Dance becoming ARAD.

 

I received a scholarship to study at Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London where I graduated as a professional dancer in 2004.

 

Shortly after my graduation I worked with English National Ballet and successively with Vienna Festival Ballet.

 

In 2009 I graduated as a Ballet teacher from the Royal Academy of Dance London receiving the ARAD CBTS RTS status. 

I’ve also worked for the Royal Academy of Dance as a Mentor for their Certificate in Ballet and Teaching Studies. 

To further my education I completed the Progressing Ballet Technique teacher course (PBT).

After my maternity I fell in love with barre classes and decided to become an instructor. 

I completed my Barre Instructor training course at Barreworks London, the original pioneers of Barre Fitness in the UK (now The Barre Collective) followed by the Pre and Postnatal Certification. 

In May 22 I became a Silver Swans Licensee (Royal Academy of Dance) and I am now able to offer ballet classes for older learners.
