The Choreographer

Matteo Corbetta

Milan, Italy

Matteo was a member Teatro alla Scala, performing on international stages throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States. In 2004, he founded the Kormat Dance Company which has performed throughout Italy and on live television.

Matteo is a certified ABT National Training Curriculum teacher, from Primary to 7th level and partnering (the highest level of certification).

He teaches master classes throughout Europe and the USA, and is sought after for his highly refined ballet technique classes and his custom-tailored Kormat Method Floor Barre classes.

The Piece

Rossini’s Tarantella

Based in Southern Italian folklore, the Tarantella’s origin is connected with tarantism. Tarantism was a mysterious “illness” that appeared in Italy in the 15th to the 17th century. It was obscurely associated with the bite of the tarantula spider. Those who were bit by the spider were seemingly cured by frenzied dancing!

Today, the Tarantella is an energetic and lively dance that continues to be a favorite amongst dancers around the world!

We have the special privilege of performing Rossini’s Tarantella, straight from Italy!
