Giacomo is a British-Italian Dance Artist who lives and works in London.

He trained in classical ballet at Arabesque Dance Center (Italy), where he also started to approach voice work, dance theatre and choreography. After completing his Bachelor Degree in Contemporary Dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, he was selected to perform with EDge Dance Company for their 2016/2017 season, and graduated from London Contemporary Dance School with a Masters Degree in 2018.

Alongside his own choreographic research, that led him to create and perform site-specific and stage works for venues across the UK and Europe, Giacomo has worked with several choreographers including Eliot Smith, Dora Frankel, Mathieu Geffré, Shobana Jeyasingh and Dam Van Huyn, performing in works for stage and camera as well as delivering a wide range of dance workshops.

Giacomo worked and studied with internationally acclaimed artists such as Jorge Crecis (Towards Vivencia), Katie Lusby (Gecko), David Zambrano (Flying Low) and Hannes Langolf (DV8), whose artistry and teachings influence his current movement research.

In recognition to his professional expertise and experience of teaching in Higher Education, Giacomo was awarded the Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) in June 2022.
