She was first dancer at the Opera House in Munich under the direction of Lina Wertmüller and conductor Giuseppe Sinopoli. Afterwards she graduated in contemporary dance at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City. Later she studied acting at the HB Studio, also in New York. She then returned to Italy.
