Galas

For a few years now, the star of the Paris Opera House and former director of the National Dance Company of Spain, José Carlos Martínez, has organized star galas that allow Spanish dancers working abroad to dance in their country.

In December 2019, José Carlos returned to his homeland to present the Great Christmas Gala-Dance Stars, the first edition of a project that was born with a vocation of permanence and whose objective is to make visible the wide group of Spanish dancers who triumph outside of our borders. Belonging to prestigious companies such as The Royal Ballet of London, Het Nationale Ballet of Amsterdam, the Dresden Semperoper Ballett or the National Ballet of Spain, among others, a large representation of Spanish figures offered a program composed of classical, neoclassical and Spanish dance pieces. On that occasion, the Spanish star Lucía Lacarra headed the poster, in a gala that brought together Spanish artists like Sergio Bernal, Itziar Mendizabal, Jon Vallejo, Aída Badia, Ángel García Molinero, Sonia Vinograd and Ricardo Castellanos. In addition, international figures like Maria Kochetkova, Matthew Golding and Ryoichi Hirano participated too.
