For the past 30 years of this creator and ballerina’s career, research, experimentation, and commitment have been key to her success. This endeavor has resulted in an impressive track record with more than a score of plays produced, in addition to engaging in many different initiatives and interesting projects.

In addition to the contributions she has made to her own company since 1996, her effervescence for dance has also spilt over into the field of teaching.

Numerous performers have passed through her own studio she has directed since 1997, making her an acclaimed educator in the Andalusian dance environment.
