Flavia was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and moved to the United States in 2003 to pursue a Masters Degree at the University of Michigan Law School. Flavia started taking ballet lessons at age 7, but retired from practice at 17. After settling in Phoenix, she became a subscriber of Ballet Arizona and was instantly impressed with the world class caliber of the valley’s resident company. Recently, Flavia decided to resume her ballet practice by taking adult classes at Ballet Arizona; yet another way of staying engaged with the company and nurturing her passion for the ballet. Flavia is the proud mom of 4 year old Nina, who is already a fan of the ballet, a frequent attendee of Ballet Arizona performances, and, hopefully, a soon-to-be student at the School of Ballet Arizona.
