Once again this year, the Circolo Tennis Rocco Polimeni of Reggio Calabria ended their summer season with a festival dedicated to the young, chic and total glamour. The stage was transformed into a catwalk for the event Moda & Danza. The young members – children and teenagers – had fun being “models for a day” giving life to the event with a couture flavor, with an accent of sporty, casual and glam. During the intermission, there were ballet, contemporary and pop performances by the Arabesque Centro Formazione Danza di Pasqualina Iacopino. Numbers performed were: Bollywood, Say My Name, Justin Bieber, Memory and Don Quixote.
The president of the CT Polimeni, Igino Postorino, entrusted the artistic direction and organization for the evening to the artistic director of over 30 years for the Arabesque School of Dance, Pasqualina Iacopino who managed to masterfully interpret the spirit of the event, creating an osmosis between dancers and models, in a burst of color and scenery. On the stage, a modern day Cinderella, in a fuchsia dress, after walking for “Imperial Biella” revealed her romantic side by wearing ballet shoes. The protagonist, Michela Sarra, a student at the Dance Academy of Milan and winner of several national competitions.
