susanna beltrami

Susanna Beltrami's name appears on the Italian dance scene as early as 1986, when on her return from the Merce Cunningham Foundation in New York, she ranks among the major choreographers in Italy who mark an important new beginning for contemporary dance.

She immediately received teaching and directional positions in the most important centers of choreographic training in northern Italy, while at the same time proving to be a pioneer of modern and contemporary dance in Italy through her innovative choreographic work, always open to experimentation and contamination between different artistic worlds. 

After intense artistic collaborations with musicians, sound designers and important Italian directors such as Maurizio Scaparro, Giorgio Albertazzi and Andrée Ruth Shammah, in 1998 she created, together with étoile Luciana Savignano, of Compagnia Pier Lombardo Danza - now Compagnia Susanna Beltrami - based in Milan and recognized by the Ministry of Performing Arts.

Since 2006, she has been directing Accademia Susanna Beltrami, a path of excellence for choreographic training, and the founding nucleus of the future "house of dance," DanceHaus Susanna Beltrami, inaugurated in 2009, the year in which the choreographer is concurrently engaged within the RAI DUE talent show "Italian Academy."  

DanceHaus Susanna Beltrami is now considered a true dance-community, a forge of arts and crafts and an international reference point for young artists and dance creatives who here have the opportunity to experiment, compare and specialize in a stimulating context, in line with the cultural and artistic trends of the moment. 

Since 2018, she has been co-director of the National Center for Dance Production, DANCEHAUSpiù.
