CND Video Capsules

Culture for everyone

Compañía Nacional de Danza, directed by por Joaquín De Luz presents Dance Capsules, described here after, with the purpose of approaching dance to society and making more than ever CND a meeting point for choreographers, dancers, musicians, ballet masters, playwrights, costume designers and plastic artists among others.


These days of confinement, which affect us all, I’ve felt tremendously worried. The terror of loss and broken families add to other situation this pandemic is causing and will keep causing once we start our new normality.

I’m also worried for my colleagues in the cultural world in general, and specifically those who dance. It’ll be a time of uncertainty and hardship for fellow dancers, choreographers, directors, masters… and more so for the private and freelance sector.

I find immensly neccesary that we become supportive as citizens with our neighbours and those affected by the situation, to help the world recover. From the Compañía Nacional de Danza we are commited to lend a helping hand for those inn need, to help our sector and reach our public.

I want to send a huge virtual and solidary hug and let you all know that, from the CND, you can always count on us. Let dance live on.
