DANZARTE


Compañía de Danza Española




Greeting

I established this dance company, which has been my long-cherished wish, with David Sánchez and Antonio Pérez, and the company’s debut performance was taken place on November 3, 2014. We are aiming to create unique and original performance with full of dreams and dramas by maximizing the beauty of Spanish dance.
Participation in the Arts Festivals sponsored by Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan became my very valuable experience and I would like to dedicate myself to producing successful stage for people who support future arts of Spanish dance.
