Natalia Magnicaballi returns summer 2020

Magnicaballi has had a long relationship with RMSA/RMDT, beginning in 2005, when she first performed the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy in RMDT’s annual production of The Nutcracker. For the past five years she has taught Master Ballet classes for summer intensives. In 2018, Magnicaballi retired from Ballet Arizona after over 15 years of dancing but she continues her coaching and teaching in the United States and abroad. As a Principal Dancer, she also continues to work close with Suzanne Farrell and has since the day Ferrell started the Company in 2001.
Since Magnicaballi is a big part of RMSA/RMDT’s dance family, we reached out and asked if she had anything she wanted to share about this years program. Here are her touching words which come at such a meaningful time:
“2020. There is no doubt this year will be remembered and marked in history books forever. In many cases, if not most, for unhappy reasons. But then what is happiness, its true meaning? Just sat down to write these lines, knowing I will be soon visiting and working with RMSA dancers again, and I would be lying, if not admitting the immense feeling of joy running through me. Am I blessed? I sure feel so!
It’s not a secret the Arts have been my life. In my humble understanding art is as much of a basic need as the air we breath to live. I truly believe so… based on the story of my life. But now, seeing the impressive amount of effort and commitment the younger generations have been showing, jumping from bed to cold tile or concrete floors, executing their dance combinations in the most limited kitchen spaces, and still smiling to the computer’s camera, when doing so, and still hoping and asking for more … I realize, one more time, I’m not alone.
I can once again confirm that dancing, as an expression, was, is and will always be one of the main resources we humans have not only to express ourselves, but to be.
Seeing how much the Arts are struggling all over the world is simply devastating. But, and this is a very big but, it has been always during the most trying times along our history when very special people took a stand and made a difference. For that I must thank you Ms. Liz! I always treasured your commitment, your love to our art form and your incredibly hard work to achieve excellence. Your willingness and decision to continue doing so, despite the odds, is very humbling and makes me feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with you, your very talented students and your whole team, once again! And to count you, Ms. Liz, among my true dear friends.
So here I find myself, knowing it’s only a matter of days until I will be there, in Cody, at the RMSA studios, having the wonderful opportunity to pass my knowledge to the new generations of dancers at RMSA, one more time” – Natalia Magnicaballi
RMSA/RMDT looks forward to Magnicaballi’s arrival, and we feel blessed that our students and the community have the opportunity to learn from her expertise.
The general public, RMSA Alumni, and RMSA Academy 2B and older students can register for this week of Intensives, with the Ballet Master Classes online or through our free studio app. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity which is scheduled for June 15-18, 2020 in Cody, Wyoming.
