My name is Carlotta Ones, I am 25 years old and I am a dancer. I started dance very early, I embarked on a professional journey From the age of 12. At 18 I left In Milan where I joined La Scala. I stayed there for 3 years, then I worked in Rome, and finally at the Paris Opera ! Since the first confinement last year, we have made a lot of shows in video capture, without public. The opera has reopened to spectators recently, but I am not working on it right now - even if I hope Go back up very quickly on stage. I do a lot of freelance projects: for individuals, for television, for brands ... I danced in a film, on events and even On parades !

Carlotta Ones

Yes, I think of a woman particularly without whom I would not be where I am today: Paola! It was My teacher in Rome, My mentor, almost my second mother When I was young. She has always reflected and pushed me further. Without ever forcing me, she always sent in the right direction.

In dance, there is Lots of very inspiring women! For me, the ultimate icon will always remain Carla Fracci. Unfortunately, she died a few months ago, it was a real shock for the world of dance. She was the best known Italian dancer, a classic ballet icon, A very special woman and Very inspiring. I had the immense honor of dance with her When I was very young. It was incredible to face its energy and elegance unique. These are unforgettable moments, forever engraved in my memory. I also admire a lot Sylvie Guillem, I find her incredible, she embodies perfectly The dancer I would like to be.

In older ballets, like the Swan Lake For example, there was Many more women than men, but today that changed a lot ! In more contemporary ballets, parity is generally respected, there is As many women as men. There are even ballets only men today. More and more men are dancers!

If you could live 24 hours in the life of another woman, who would you choose?

Carlotta Ones

I like everything that is retro, so I would like to spend 24 hours in the life of Sophia Loren when she was young. It's a huge Italian icon, She embodies beauty, elegance, I am fascinated by her spontaneity both in her art and in life ... I read that we had several common points In our respective journeys, especially that she lived in France. And she is not a dancer so that would change my daily life for 24 hours!

Do you have a message to send young women who would like to become a dancers like you?

Carlotta Ones

The course to be a dancer is very hard, it's an environment Very competitive. We often leave our family very early, you have to quickly abandon your "normal" life. You have to work hard and Do not abandon, Because once you get there where you want, it's magic! Living from your passion is an immense chance. To reach the end of his dream, you have to do a lot of sacrifices, But the game is worth the candle!
