About your trainer

PAOLA PAGANO

My life path has enabled me to develop my listening, observational and analytical skills – all of which I have always strived to put at the service of others.
My discovery of GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® and GYROKINESIS® has deepened even further my perception of what it means to be “human” and how we function.
I teach these methods on a daily basis with much joy, kindness and respect for each of my students.

My background AND QUALIFICATIONS:

I was born in Naples where I studied dance at the Lyceum Academy of Mara Fusco.
At 17, I signed my first contract with the Aterballetto (Reggio-Emilia) under the direction of Amedeo Amodio. I then left Italy to join the Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse, where I became Principal Dancer and then Ballet Master.

Over the course of my 25 years at the Capitole, I interpreted many roles in classical, neo-classical and contemporary ballets repertoire. I was called to perform on national and international stages as a guest artist.

At the same time, I trained to obtain a dance teacher certificate (French national diploma), which I obtained in 1994. Later, I audited a Master’s degree in Ergonomics at the CNAM (French National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts).

In 2013, my passion for movement and my desire to accompany people in a process that helps them increase their everyday well-being led me to take up a variety of trainings related to holistic methods. In 2015 I obtained my certification as a GYROTONIC ® trainer and created the first studio dedicated to this method in the heart of Toulouse.

« In a sense we are all dancers, singers and artists. Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercices allow even those people that have minimum expectations to experience the music of the heart and their inner dance ».
