International dancers of the most outstanding companies of the current scene will perform pieces of classical, neoclassical, contemporary and Spanish dance.

As in previous editions, the program has been formed by Aitor Arrieta, principal dancer of the English National Ballet; Juanjo Carazo, dancer of the National Dance Company; and Daniel Vicandi, former professional dancer. "Our main goal is to generate audiences, to do our bit so that more and more people feel attracted to dance and integrate it into their entertainment routines. Therefore, we believe that if there is a person who likes flamenco and comes to the Gala for this reason, our diversity of styles can make them discover classical or contemporary dance and decide to broaden their tastes for the future," explains Vicandi.


The proposal, very diverse, invites to a journey through different styles. Thus, the program includes an important presence of classical and neoclassical ballet by Carlos González Olivo, current dancer of the American Ballet Theatre, who on this occasion will be partnered by Elissabetta Formento, soloist dancer of the National Dance Company. Together they will perform The Nutcracker and Flames of Paris. On the other hand, Eukene Sagues Abad from Navarre, currently a dancer in The Royal Danish Ballet, will perform with her partner Meirambek Nazargozhayev the famous ballet El corsario and the choreography Nola heldu naiz ni honaino, created by Sagues herself.

Contemporary dance will be present with pieces performed by international dancers Daniel Roces and Madoka Ishikawa from the Leipziger Ballett of Germany: Interval, by Goyo Montero, and Benedictus, by Mario Schröder. Spanish dance will be represented by Inmaculada Salomón and Eduardo Martínez, both principal dancers of the Spanish National Ballet.

"They are dancers who are determined to bring dance of the best level to Spain. They all want to take advantage of the opportunity to be able to dance in front of their people, in their country. It is an unfortunately rare opportunity, because most dancers have to go outside Spain to succeed. In addition, they have chosen very complex pieces to perform, and this is a added value, that means that they are people who give their all so that dance is much more important in our country. We have to give the public the best to make them come back", Vicandi emphasizes.
