Niki Ballerini @niki_ballerini

 
Niki Ballerini is a professional Dancer and Choreographer. At a young age he performed at Teatro Alla Scala di Milano and Teatro Degli Arcimboldi( Milan, italy) in shows like “The Nutcraker” with Etoiles like Roberto Bolle and Alessandra Ferri, “AIDA”, “Classical Ballet” and “Giallo ‘700” while attending the Teatro Alla Scala Dance Academy. He officially stepped into the dance scene and entertainment industry in the summer of 2018, debutting at his first job as Choreographer and dancer for ALO Casini ( Xfactor italy) music video “Uomini che amano le donne”: a LGBTQIA+ anthem who later went viral on the internet.
 
Before that he had just started for the first time heavy training in different styles of urban dance in Germany at URBAN DANCE CAMP with international choreographers such as : Yanis Marshall, Evans Hamilton, Dana Alexa, Jake Kodish, Duch Ann Tran, KK Harris and Karon Lynn. He was later invited the next year as an outstanding dancer to attend again.
 
After his debut for ALO he went on to continue his training in Los Angeles, CA – USA . There he trained and studied with the best choregraphers and teachers in the industry such as Jojo Gomez, Jae fusz, Davion Coleman, Ricky Lam, Nika Kljun, Camillo Lauricella, Alexis Beauregard, Timor Steffens and many others . He then came across Brinn Nicole(Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, Chris Brown, AMAs) with whom he began for the first time training on heels and started a relation of friendship and mentorship. Brinn stated ” Nick was here for 3 weeks and I don’t think he missed ONE of my classes. At first he took my class with no heels but I told him that needed to change! In only 2 weeks of heel training with me , I felt like I was looking at a dancer that has trained for 1 full year! I have never been so impressed with someone in such a short amount of time. His grateful heart and soulful nature was a sweet reminder of why I love what I do so much.”
 
Coming back to Italy after such an experience Art Directors all over the country started taking interest in his talent and skills and began calling him to teach classes in their studios. He still took all the available time he had to continue his training traveling to London where he had the chance to be called out in class by Joe Brown ( Beyonce – Homecoming choreographer) to dance togheter alone with him and later be signed in a Talent Agency @LoveRudeye.
 
While keeping on with dance studies all over Italy attending the best dance camps and events, his Teaching carrer began.
Niki found out an immense passion and love for teaching, being able to share whatever experience he acquired and see others thrive and become an active part of the dance community filled him with so much satisfaction and gratitude. His style of teaching is extremely uplifting and focused on self-confidence, trying to imbue students with as much of it as possible, preparing them for the tough environment that the industry is. His preffered styles are Jazz-funk, Commercial , Heels and Hip-Hop.
 
Since 2019 he’s been teaching in major schools all over Italy as well as abroad : from Irvine,CA to London and even Helsinki , Finland where dancers would come from other nearby countries to be able to attend his mastercalsses and heels intensive program.
