Artistic Directors 

In 2014 the Kammertänzer Alen Bottaini founded together with Monica Merlo the Bottaini Merlo International Center of Arts, emerging from the earlier Ballet School la danza.

The two Artistic Directors have a vision for BBA: to establish a centre of excellence in classical ballet and related arts; to offer superior training in a nurturing, disciplined and pleasant environment and to expand the community awareness of the enjoyment of dance.

BBA welcomes all sort of students, from young children to adults of any age, from beginners to professionals, sharing with all the passion for dance and the respect of the profession.
