Valentine Colasante

Valentine Colasante spent her childhood between Italy and France in an artistic environment. She was very young when in 1998 she joined the Opéra National de Paris’ dance school where she trained for eight years. From then on she worked hard, pushing herself to the limits to become a complete artist. It all paid off when at the age of just 17 she was hired by the Opéra National de Paris’ prestigious ballet company in 2006. She very quickly rose up the ranks from Coryphée in 2010, Sujet in 2011 then Première danseuse in 2013. 

On 5 January 2018 after her performance as Kitri in Don Quixote (Rudolf Nureyev), Valentine Colasante was promoted to Étoile

She has since participated in numerous creative projects in artistic collaborations and on the Opéra National de Paris ballet company’s official tours, including performing in Australia (Sydney, 2007), China (Beijing, 2008), Russia (Novosibirsk, 2010), Malaysia (Singapore, 2011), USA (New York, 2017) and Spain (Madrid, 2019).
