Meet Our Coaches
Owner and Head Coach for Lower Levels & Group
Giorgia Nobili, born in Rome, Italy, fell in love with dance before she was born. She began ballet classes at the age of 2, despite being the youngest in the class by two years! Her passion at a young age kept her at the top of her class at Teatro Greco where she scored top marks on her exams year after year. In 2002 she was one of 9 students selected out of 200 to attend the world renown Teatro Dell'Opera di Roma.
After moving to the US at the age of 10 she attended many ballet schools all over MA including the Boston Ballet School and various private coaches, sometimes driving close to two hours (one way) in search of best quality training. Giorgia trained rigorously 25+ hours weekly, gaining knowledge in all aspects of dance technique, performance, choreography and production throughout her student career. She also has been selected to dance for several junior and professional companies such as: The Great Moscow Ballet Nutcracker, Commonwealth Ballet Company, Tony Williams Dance Company, Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble, and many more. During this time she also expanded her training to include the circus arts, with a focus on contortion and aerial arts.
Her teaching career began at age 12. At the age of 14 she began teacher training, working with her own teachers to understand how to properly develop young athletes both physically and mentally. At 16 she began teaching her own ballet and acro classes.
In 2012 Giorgia began teaching young rhythmic gymnasts ballet- a fundamental part of this sport. Using her circus and ballet training in tandem, she learned all about this amazing sport and fell in love. Soon after working alongside current business partner Mayya Mashatina, she began teaching her own Junior Olympic group who went on to win silver medals at the USAG Open Championships.
Since then, she has opened MG Rhythmic Academy where she is head coach for the Lower Levels (JO pre-team and levels 3-6) and groups. In this time she has coached girls who have gone on to win State, Regional and National titles as well as countless medals both nationally and internationally.
Giorgia also has additional knowledge in injury prevention, child development, music theory, choreography, traditional, character and Latin dances, acrobatics and lifts and clothing/costume design and production!
Her goal is to raise well-rounded, self-sufficient and confident young women, all the while teaching them the beautiful discipline that is Rhythmic Gymnastics.
