I’m a Spanish multi-disciplined dancer trained in Spanish, Flamenco and Contemporary Dance based in Scotland. After my professional dance degree, I have done a MA in choreography techniques to develop my own work bringing together choreographer and performer roles.

Based on using dance as a therapy, I channel the emotions and deal with them releasing the energy and transforming it into art and communication in most of my dance creations. Using this method, I won the Young Creative Dance Award in 2016 with my solo project called “Locked”. Then, I performed this piece in Albania in the Biennial of Young Creators of Europe and the Mediterranean 2017 representing Spain.

I’ve been working in Scotland in the last 3 years, touring around the UK, dancing, singing and storytelling between the two cultures, Spanish and Scottish. I have toured across Europe too with multiple Spanish dance companies and now, I use this experience to be a central point of communication, translating words and feelings from different cultures into my body.

I'm interested in theatre, music and photography and I am always exploring further. Within my work I'm using electronic music to change the expression of tradition and find another quality of movement that could represent this music.
