Meet our dancers: Haruhi Otani

Haruhi Otani, a hard-working dancer and lover of Spanish culture and gastronomy, has brought the National Dance Company her joy since 2015. She began her professional ballet training in 2010 at the Sasaki Mika Ballet Academy in her country, Japan. Thanks to this, she participated in numerous international competitions that lead her to win great prizes; the most important, the opportunity to start working at the CND with José Carlos Martínez. Her ability to work daily and her way of enjoying herself on stage led her to be promoted in 2018 to the category of solo dancer, where she continues to this day giving us her energy and art.
Erez Ilan

Dancing in the World of Erez Ilan

Erez Ilan, a shy but passionate ballet dancer, has been a part of the Compañía Nacional de Danza’a (CND) dance team since 2008; an opportunity extended to him by Nacho Duato, then CND director. Starting at a very young age, Ilan trained at The School of Ice Skating and Ballet and at The Thelma-Yellin High School of Arts, both in his native Israel. At 18, he took the leap and crossed the Mediterranean to explore Europe and to work at the CND. His dedication and talent paid off, earning him a place as soloist in 2017, a role he holds to this day, marking both a personal triumph for himself and the CND directorship’s validation of his work.
