Interview: Model/Dancer Alberto Del Prete (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Im Alberto Del Prete, I'm from Pesaro (Italy) and I'm a dancer and model. I have two kids: Alessandro (7) and Marco (almost 2).
I'm a professional dancer since I was 20. I worked for lots of the most important Italian TV shows, such as Amici, X Factor, Dance Dance Dance, Italian's got Talent, and many more. I danced for Franco Dragone in his show Taboo in Macau and in some of the most important theatre in Italy with Romeo and Giulietta – Ama e cambia il mondo. I worked with singers like Claudio Baglioni and Alessandra Amoroso and I participated to important events like the EMA, besides the Fifth Harmony, and the Fashion Show of Dolce and Gabbana in Venice.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to change my way to face the new opportunities... I often procrastinate due to my indecision, but I'm working on it!
How did you start modeling and dancing?
I started dance at 11 years old and it's always be my deepest passion. Instead, modeling came by chance, some local brands wanted me for their marketing campaigns and asked me for some shootings. It wasn't in my plans, but I really like it and enjoy it.
What do you think of the work as a model and as a dancer?
About the work as a model I think that the most interesting thing is how each photographer can take the different version of you and find some hidden aspect of your personality.
To be a dancer is for me a tool to express myself when I can't do it with words or when words are not enough.
What is your beauty regimen?
I like to run and to work out beside my dance practice. I always try to have an healty diet and lifestyle even if it's difficult with the italian cuisines and granny's dishes. Pasta, pizza and desserts are my weakness.
What are your qualities which distinguish you from others?
I think that my best quality is that I always want to be around people that are better than me and that can teach me something. I also like to support and push the people that I work with, especially my friends.
What are your plans for the future?
Every day I try to learn the more than I can and to work hard. I want to improve myself as dancer and model to achieve always more important goals and be proud of myself.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
The best event that I take part to is Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda that I did in Venice this year and in witch I met important people like Jennifer Lopez, Puff Daddy, Vin Diesel, Luis Fonsi, Ozuna and many more...
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling and dancing?
The best advise that I can ever say to the future models and dancers is: be always yourself, never give up your dreams and specially take care of yourself.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think that is beautiful: you can find in the magazine a lot of different model and photographer from all over the world. It's a really good window for newbies in this industry and I'm very happy to be part of it!
