Stella Battaglia’s education is composed of a blend of classical studies and ballet school (Royal Academy of Dancing of London and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing). She is a classical and contemporary dancer and a classical dance teacher for professional training (Royal Academy of Dancing of London).
She enhances her knowledges with anatomy studies, teaching technique, body manipulation, posture, breathing. She enrolled at the Académie Princesse Grace in Monte Carlo, where she considerably developped her skills, undertaking later on a research on yoga techniques to be applied on dance and performing artists training.

She has been working with Galileo Museum in Florence since 2000, with art set-ups and educational activities with special regards to the relationship between art and science. She worked with the Architecture Faculty in the University of Florence teaching Descriptive Geometry.

She presented her works as a sculptor in several art exhibitions in Milan, Paris, Shanghai.
Alongside with her passion for arts, she never gave up her passion for training and workout, finding in Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis two really satisfactory disciplines for both exercise and personal balance.
