And you also won a scholarship to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School in New York. How was your time in NY?
"It was an amazing experience. The Summer School was great. I studied with important teachers and I met a lot of American ballet dancers like Marcelo Gomez."
In 2013 Alessandro again competed in the Youth America Grand Prix and won an award for his performance in the Giselle pas de deux, danced with partner Martina Mantovani. They were invited to perform the duet again at the Gala in Cordoba.
Why did you chose that pas de deux?
“I like that ballet very much and when I get older I want to dance Albrecht's variation.”
2013 was a lucky year for Alessandro. He won the first prize in a competition in Alassio, Italy and he was invited to perform at the Danzainfiera in Florence.
What did you dance in Alassio?
"In Alassio I danced Harlequinade and in Florence a pas-de-deux with Ivana Bueno, a Mexican dancer. We had a guest ballet teacher visiting our school from Cuba, Adria Velazquez and she rehearsed us. She was very good, she also taught Carlos Acosta and Rolando Sarabia."
Last year Alessandro won several national competitions including the Grand Prix “Ciudad de Barcelona”. The sculptor, Richard Macdonald, made a statue of him and donated it to the city in his honour.
