Angelica Stella studied dance from the age of three and soon began her career as a professional dancer, a career that led her in 2004 to study in New York and dance for the Martha Graham Dance Ensemble, as well as for the main company.
As an integral part of the preparation of the company’s dancers, the first encounter with the method of Joseph Pilates takes place in New York, in the city where the master opened his studio as soon as he arrived in America. And she was immediately fascinated by it.
Returning to Italy, as well as continuing her projects as a dancer, Angelica began training to become a Pilates instructor and, after completing the total course of 450 hours, in 2012 she obtained full certification from the Pilates Network school, recognized by the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) under the direction of her mentor Jolita Trahan.
