About Rosemarie Piccolo    About International Ballet Dance Center

IBC at CH, The Lindt Ballet Theater, and The Lindt Children's Ballet Theater's successful Renaissance continues day by day, year after year, with new exciting and entertaining works and innovative educational programming.

The foundation of any dance company is its energy and creative artistry. Here at IBC and The Lindt Ballet Theater, companies can be proud of the artistic directorship of Rosemarie Piccolo who not only has brought with her experience in working with such legendary performers as Maurice Bejart, Roland Petit and Mathilde Kschessinskaya, but her training with the world famous Madame Nora Kiss forms a link to history's greatest dancers such as Pavlova and Carlotta Brianza.

Rosemarie Piccolo has also studied with the great choreographer Kurt Jooss, and has extensively studied various dance forms such as Classical Spanish, Modern Tap, Pas de Deux, and the Rudolf von Laban method of Kinetography.

Rosemarie Piccolo studied at Folkwang-Schule, the esteemed academy of dance and art in Germany, as the only recipient of a scholarship under the Director Kurt Jooss. In Paris, she studied at the Waker Studio under the direction of Madame Nora Kiss.

Rosemarie Piccolo performed as a Prima Ballerina at these companies:

  • Teatro Tordi None (Rome, Italy)
  • Aula Poalo VI (Vatican City)

She was honored to perform in the presence of the Pope John Paul II three times with an audience of over a thousand people in the Auala Poalo VI in Vatican City. For these three performances, she created her own works.

In New York, at Carnegie Hall, Rosemarie Piccolo with her husband, Alfred Piccolo, started her own company, the Lindt Ballet Theater, with all of her original ballets. These include: The Ghosts of Music Hall, That Verona Affair, The Cavalier of Venice Casanova, The Last Days of Pompeii, The Roman Carousel. These works were choreographed by Rosemarie Piccolo and written and directed by Alfred Piccolo.
