Iolanda Portogallo


Born in Italy, Iolanda’s passion for dance began at an early age. 

Currently, she is in her third year of professional training at Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, performing pieces by Sharon Watson and Jane McKernan. 

Prior to this she undertook pre-professional training at the Accademia Internazionale Coreutica in Florence, studying ballet and contemporary technique, where she had the privilege to perform different pieces by the choreographer Craig Davidson. 

Aside from developing her performance skills, she is interested in improvisation, character based work, and choreography.
