"There is truly no experience like Toscana Dance Hub. In the magical city of Florence, you are given the opportunity to grow as a dance artist in a setting so rich with culture and art. Giada Ferrone is such an amazing woman and teaches highly rigorous and artistically demanding ballet classes each day that really set you up for work with the guest artists. Both summers that I have spent at TDH, I was pushed beyond what I thought my physical limits were, stretching my dancer capabilities as well as my artistic ones. You sweat a lot and you grow even more. It’s quite incredible what this intense period of training did for me. I met people that I will forever share bonds with and had the invaluable experience of watching myself change in such a short amount of time."
