Ballet has always been Mila’s greatest passion. She started dancing when she was 6 years old and was accepted at The ExelDance Project in Turin at the age of 9. Three years later, Mila was offered a scholarship for the Staatliche Ballettschule in Berlin. During her studies, she was given the opportunity to dance in Staatsballett Berlin’s performance of The Nutcracker.

After this, she was invited to study at the Dutch National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam at the age of 15, where she graduated in 2021. Mila has already danced in several of Dutch National Ballet’s performances.
