Profile/ Experience

I was born in mexico City where I started my dancing career initially working with groups such as 'El Martillo TAP', 'Asalto Dario' and companies 'Ballet Teatro del espacio' and 'Ballet Independente'.
In 1996 I was a finalist in the 2nd international ballet and modern dance competition Nagoya, Japan. That same year I won 2nd prize at INBA-UAM award in Mexico City (in conjunction with 'Utopia Dance Theatre').

Since 1997 I have been living in mainland Europe where I have continuously working with companies such as 'Stadttheater Gissen' (Roberto Galvàn) and 'Landestheater linz' (Robert Poole) as well as interpretating works for various choreographers such as Amanda Miller, Robert Poole and Charlotta Öfverholm, among many others.

In 2002 I decided to join the european free scene which lead me to Spain, where I lived until 2007. During my stay there I worked with such choreographers as Matxalen Bilbao and Blanca Arrieta as well as creating my own work.
I also continued to work as a guest dancer with the company 'Constanza Macras-Dorky'(based in Berlin).
During my career I have participated in various dance fesivals across the world. Including: Russia, Sweden, Denmark, South Africa, France, Columbia, Bolivia, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and The Netherlands.

Since 2008 I have been a collaborator and dancer of the 'Irina lorez & co' in Luzern, Switzerland, where I am currently based.

In 2010 and 2011 I took part in two productions by choreographer Nicki lizztas in Stuttgart. 'Das lux protokoll' and 'Supervia'.

My choreographic works include:
‘Al otro lado dal muro’ (‘96, Paris)
‘Brocracia’ (‘99, Germany)
‘Capricho’ (‘04 Spain)
‘Memoria’ (‘05, Ciudad de México)
‘Si fue en babel, no lo se’ (‘05 Spain)
‘Der raum’ (‘06, Spain)
‘still’ (‘08, Luzern)
‘In construction’ (‘09 , Luzern)
‘Down to Paradise’ (‘10, Luzern)
‘Time over Time’ (‘11, Luzern)


In 2004 I started work as a teacher of contemporary dance and partnering; giving both regular classes and workshops in Mexico, Germany, Russia, Bolivia, Switzerland and Spain.

Class of Contemporary Dance
The founding basis in my class, is the dancer’s relationship with the floor; using the centre as a gravitational point and an ally of movement.
Beginning with a stretch and then focusing on floor work, following on with risky combinations and dynamic exercise.
The more verical the intention is, the greater range of movement there will be. Sending energy to a distant point in space in order to create a richer and broader movement.
The mixture of directions will guide to provide a dynamic class, risky and full of physicality.
It is important to take into consideration the dancer’s individual anatomy, to ensure they find the direction of their interpretation in accordance with their own being.
The class will blend a variety of techniques such as Limon, Ballet, Release, Capoeira and my own stlyle.
