Dance school

The Ateneo della Danza continues the educational and training project already started by its Artistic Director, Marco Batti, with the Siena Ballet and the Salto Dance School.

The path is born from the idea of ​​promoting, approaching and training students from an early age, without losing sight of the main motivation that interested them at first: the joy of dancing and creativity.

With this principle at the base of the project, the school has created dance courses suitable for all levels and ages, and offers multiple disciplines to best satisfy the desires and passions of its members
