Is there any ballet schools in Italy that have a good pre-professional backround? If so, do they have a website?

The most wellknown are :
"Scuola di ballo del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma " in Rome, and "Scuola di ballo del Teatro alla Scala" in Milan.
Don't know of a website though and don't expect it to have an English translation !
You always can ask on the most known Italian balletwebsite runned by a group of balletdancers from La Scala : http://www.balletto.net

The link for La Scala school (only in italian)

The opera of Rome

There is also the school of San Carlo in Naples (only an historical background, but in english)

And the national academy in Rome, the only school that gives a diploma recognised by the sstate

A word of caution, though; I had a friend who was a dancer for a major Italian opera company, and they were on strike so often, or honoring another picket line, that she had to quit in order to be able to dance more.
