Interview: Model/Dancer Veronica Tundis (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Veronica Tundis and I am an Italian professional freelance dancer and model. I started to study dance when I was aged three and then I moved from my hometown in the South of Italy to Rome, where i studied with several international teachers and choreographers.
Beside my work as a dancer around Europe and the world I’ve been from 2013 rehearsals assistant for an important international contemporary dance academy in Rome and I worked beside choreographers coming from the most important companies as NDT,SCAPINO,BATSHEVA.
From this year I am artistic director of International Creative Hub a three years contemporary dance program based in Rome.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I learnt with time that the most important think in my job is to accept myself as I am, and try to be the best version of me.
Right now I think that I wouldn’t change anything of myself, neither physically or in my personality, I just try to keep improving my skills and most of all my weaknesses.
How did you start modelling?
I started modelling for some collaborations on Instagram and social media. It was a case but I started to enjoy it more and more each time I did it, and now I really love it.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I really like it! For me has been a new opportunity to express myself in a new and different way then dance, but at the same time a good opportunity to use all my sensitivity as a dancer in a more concrete way.
Modelling is not an easy work as most of people might think, it needs to be confident with new people and environment suddenly as you start the shooting and at the same time to be focused and open minded on what the photographer or brand is expecting from you.
What is your beauty regimen?
I really take care on what I eat and drink, that doesn’t mean at all that I don’t enjoy food but that I choose healthy food. Once doing this also my skin and hairs are a lot more healthy.
Beside this I try to have a good skin care each day.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I really enjoy what I do, so even if I’m very focused, Stakhanovite and professional I’m always positive while working.
What are your plans for the future?
I’m starting my new project as artistic director of this three years educational dance program and I really hope to have the opportunity of let international Creative Hub growing in the future.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
For sure dance in the Alta Moda fashion Show of Dolce&Gabbana in Venice on august 2021.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Don’t be afraid of showing your personality and at the same time always take care of what the brand you’re working for is looking for in that moment and for that campaign.
What do you think of the magazine?
I find the magazine very interesting for the effort in showing and let the audience meet a lot of good photographers and models. The quality is very high.
