While Compañía Nacional de Danza assumes the most important titles of the classical repertoire —The Nutcracker being the most recent—, many groups with no possibilities of staging these expensive productions are strongly committed to use the classical and neoclassical language as a way of expression. With the support of Scaena, her own dance school, teacher Carmen Roche holds the reins of her company in Madrid, having recently premiered Recreo, a creation of Juan Carlos Toledo who, based on the discipline of ballet, addresses an important current topic: school bullying. In Tenerife, the company EntreDanza —resident group at Escuela de Danza de Tacoronte—, directed by Charo Febles, has been making its contributions producing didactic proposals such as Impresiones, Ver para leer, and Una mano para recibir, otra para dar.
Jean-Philippe Dury, former dancer at CND, appears committed to a more neoclassical style in Elephant in the Black Box (EBB), a comprehensive and international dance project with a range of activities going from training and the professional accompaniment to supporting new artists as well as the creation and representation. After the ambitious premiere of Women 17/27, a collective work for 30 women from eight different countries, it has premiered a triple program with the pieces 1936, by Marco Blázquez, Siuk, by Francesco Vecchione, and Cel Black Days, by Dury himself.
