Natalia Magnicaballi – Master Ballet Instructor
Natalia Magnicaballi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has been the only principal dancer leading simultaneously two major ballet companies in the United States for almost two decades, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet since its conception in 1999 and Ballet Arizona since 2002.
A graduate of Teatro Colón, Natalia became a principal dancer at age 19. In Europe, she led the Italian company Aterballetto for two seasons. Her repertoire includes the lead roles in 38 Balanchine ballets, and she has also danced the leads in all the most beloved classic ballets, as well as in works and premieres by renowned international choreographers. Natalia has toured around six continents, performing in the main houses, opera theatres, and arenas, including the Paris Opera Garnier and the Mariinsky Theatre.
Natalia has built a widespread reputation for herself as a sought-after master ballet instructor and artist coach since a young age, continuously for over 18 years now, while simultaneously performing as a principal dancer. Natalia holds a Master’s in coaching and personal psychology (CLEA) and has pursued psychological education studies at Stanford; her experience and continuing development, research and studies in educational psychology, have led her to develop a comprehensive teaching method focused not just on the dance students’ technique and physicality, but in their overall growth, providing each with key tools for their physical, psychological and emotional development, essential not only when performing on stage, but throughout their lives.
