Lisa Pellegrini was born at Parma, Italy in 1978.
She began her first course in theatrical studies at the age of six and remained fascinated, greatly enjoying the rehearsals and the sensations she felt during the performance. Years passed at school without the theatre and as she grew she became aware of the attraction that she felt for art in its expressive physical form. She began studying with theatre masters like Bepi Monai, Yves La Breton, Jean Méningue, the Argentine group Argonautas. She studied varied dance styles like Butoh with Imre Thorman, contemporary dance with Lucia Nicolussi Perego, theatrical dance with Roberta Voltolina, and classical Indian dance Bharata Natyam with Ujwal Bhole.
She studied in India, Italy and Argentina where she lived for a year. The dedication required for studying classical Indian dance led her to live for ten years between Italy and India where she gained a diploma in Kathak dance at the Sahana institute in Calcutta under the guide of Guruji Pradipta Niyogi. She studied with Pandit Biriju Maharaji and Saswati Sen (Delhi), Sharmila Sharma (Paris), Anurekha Ghosh and Madhuita Roy (Calcutta).
In India, she performed for the very first time with her teacher’s son, Rudrava Niyogi. From there, she danced in Italian theatres (Parma, Bologna, Rovigo, Mantova) and in India (Calcutta, Puri, Vishakhapatanam) as well as at prestigious Italian festivals (Piacenza, Sarzana, Carrara, Milano, Pontedrea, Siena, Modena).
