Already since her childhood and youth Donatella Rajo joined various jazz and ballet classes, until she got infected with the ‘salsa fever’ during her Cuba trip in 2001. Shortly after she started attending classes for Salsa Puertorriqueña at the dance school Salsapower in Zürich. Rapidly she acquired the essential technique and improved her dance skills. Only 2 years later she started teaching her first salsa classes with Nicolas Ortega in Eastern Switzerland.
In 2006, Massimiliano Russo and she decided to found their own dance school.
By now studiodanza belongs to the most renowned dance schools in Eastern Switzerland and found its permanent spot in the Swiss dance scene. Additionally to her role as a dance instructor, Donatella can be seen both as show dancer as well as choreographer on national and international stages in the show team of the studiodanza.
