Last week Carla Fracci gave her first masterclass, together with a cocahing session, on the ballet she is most closely assocaited with, Giselle.
The event happened at the Ecole Superieure de Danse de Cannes-Mougins Rosella Hightower after an invitation by the school's director Paola Cantalupo and the aid of Anna Maria Prina.
The ESDC Rosella Hightower trains 150 students from all over the world aged between 11 and 23. This year some very lucky students were able to benefit from some rare tips from the top.

What a privilege for those students.
