“Championing the Dance of Life,” with Guests the Award Winning Dancing Duo, Soloists, and Choreographers, The Ella Sisters, (Fiorella Vultaggio and Gabriella Vultaggio); and Musical Guests Cameron O’Connor, Guitarist and Composer, and Violist, Kimberly Fitch on The LIFE CHANGES Show
Fiorella Vultaggio is the epitome of what hard work can accomplish. She is a straight-A high school student, as well as a highly accomplished, award-winning dancer. Fiorella has always juggled a busy schedule. She began playing piano at 4 years-old, along with participating in various sports activities. By the time she was in grade school she was state ranked in the long-jump, qualified for regional championships in swimming, and adjudicated top in the state in piano. As she continued to explore her budding passions in life, however, two main loves clearly rose to the top—horses and dancing.
Fiorella has been chosen out of some of the best dancers in the country to be a select member of Art of Movement’s Academy program, where she will travel the country assisting world-renound choreographers in various styles of dance at each of their conventions. She has also been chosen as a part of Chloe & Maud Arnold’s #NoFilter SoleTalk Youth Tap Company based out of Los Angeles, which often performs annually at the sold-out Syncopated Ladies Tap Shows, and DC Tap Fest. In addition, Fiorella is a multiple Hollywood Vibe National Scholarship Winner, as well as a five-time Industry Dance Awards nominee for her group numbers while dancing at Element Dance Studio. Most recently Fiorella placed in the top 10 overalls for her tap solo, choreographed by Chris Rutledge from The Edge Dance Studio in L.A. and Universal Studios, at Spotlight Dance Cup Nationals.
As much as Fiorella loves dance, her other passion is horses. She is lucky enough to be attending Arizona Agribusiness and Equine Center Early College High School in Paradise Valley this coming fall. She is looking forward to working along side other animal enthusiasts as she studies the care and wellbeing of our furry friends. The ultimate fusion of her two passions would be to be a member of Cirque du Soleil’s Cavalia show where the artistry incorporates horses into the magic!
One of Fiorella’s favorite quotes is, “It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer,” by Shanna LaFluer. Fiorella’s natural strength and athleticism is only matched by her musicality and grace on stage.
THE ELLA SISTERS
The Ella Sisters, made up of Fiorella and Gabriella Vultaggio, is a culmination of years of dedication and hard work between two sisters determined to follow their passion of dance. These sisters were a bit late to the dance training scene, but in four short years they have risen to the top of the West Coast dance scene winning numerous convention scholarships with organizations such as Hollywood Vibe and Spotlight Dance Cup, top ten national solo performances, and coveted spots on Art of Movement’s The Academy.
