How did you first discover dance?
When I was six years old my parents suggested that I take music lessons, but there was not a place for me in the Zaragoza Municipal Music so they told me to do a year in the dance school, in order to get a place to study music. I did a year of dance studies and I loved it so much I haven't looked back!
Do you remember a moment when you decided or realised that you wanted to be a professional dancer?
It was in high school when I got the feeling that this is what I wanted to do for life, so I had to change to a high school that would allow me to miss half all the lessons in order to attend to my full training ballet school.
Describe something about your dancing that has changed since joining Scottish Ballet. What caused this change?
Versatility and maturity. Each year you get to work with different choreographers in different styles. Scottish Ballet has allowed me to grow as a dancer and as a person because I left home at a young age.
What’s your pre-show ritual?
I like to get something to eat, have a good coffee and then massage, stretch or strengthen depending on how my body feels and what I have to do that day.
Are there any dancers or artists that inspire you?
My favourite ballerina is Marianela Nuñez. I was really lucky to finally see her perform live last season when Scottish Ballet was doing a collaboration with The Royal Ballet and Ballet Black. For me, she is everything and it would be a pleasure to meet her in person.
A few words that would describe your personality in the studio?
Hard working and chirpy.
