FEDERICO CASILLI

Federico was born in Bologna, Italy and started dancing at the age of 8 at his mother’s private ballet school where he trained for most of his life. After getting his Diploma at the age of 18 he moved to Warrington and finished his vocational dance training at Kate Simmons Dance LTD, graduating with a Level 6 Diploma in professional dance. 

 

Federico then went on to join Vienna Festival Ballet in 2016 where he danced several soloist roles touring around the UK. He then joined Ballets de France in 2017 and had the chance to perform in Peter Pan, choreographed by Michael Pink, that premiered at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. In 2017 he joined The Krakow Opera House in Poland where he danced several soloist roles in both ballets and operas, working with iconic polish choreographers like Emil Wesołowski, who created a principal role on Federico for the premiere of Carmina Burana in 2018.

In 2019 Federico worked with English National Ballet in Christopher Wheeldon's Cinderella at the Royal Albert Hall. 

 

Federico has really missed dancing on a stage and telling beautiful stories. He is "crazy excited!" to be performing in The Secret Garden and to be finally connecting with the public again through dance
