Florinda Camilleri

Dancer


Florinda was born in Malta in 1986. She began her dance training at the age of three at the Tanya Bayona Poutiatine Academy of Dance in Malta. In 2005, she was invited to join the Contact Dance Company under the direction of Francesca Tranter, where she collaborated with many well-established international choreographers including Bawren Tavaziva, Roberto Olivan and Idan Porges. Beyond her work as a dancer, Florinda also teaches extensively, which she has found very helpful for her own exploration into technique and the development of her dance vocabulary. In 2011, Florinda was invited to join mavinkhooDance. There she performed in all of the company's productions, namely '00:00 - 00:01', 'Akasha' and 'Bla Konfini'. Before choosing to dance full-time, she graduated with a Masters in Pharmacy in 2012, and worked as a pharmaceutical representative and locum pharmacist. Florinda joined ŻfinMalta in 2014.
