Mariterese (MT) Altosino

Mariterese Altosino received her early dance training from local studios, Academy of Dance Arts and Xtreme Dance Force.  She graduated with honors from Columbia College Chicago with a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance and Business/Entrepreneurship.  Mariterese is a veteran instructor with Universal Dance Association (UDA) where she teaches high school and college dance camps throughout the summer and works National and International championships throughout the year.  Through UDA, she has traveled to Bottrop, Germany, Guayaquil, Ecuador, and Maribor, Slovenia to judge competitions and instruct local dance teams.  Altosino teaches at various studios around the Chicagoland area and has performed in events such as Carnival Choreographer’s Ball, World of Dance, Dance Chicago, and Chicago Contemporary Dance Festival.  Mariterese is also in her first year of coaching the Junior Varsity Dance Team at Downers Grove South.  Mariterese is so thankful for the entire Giordano Dance Chicago family and is extremely excited for her first year as a Junior Performing Associate after two seasons with Giordano II.
