CND. The Company

THE CND TODAY: EFFORT AND CREATIVITY

Today's National Dance Company (CND), directed by José Carlos Martínez since September 2011, is proof that a quality, hybrid national company can work. Martínez has demonstrated during his time with CND, how with effort and creativity you can achieve great things. Management knowhow has combined pieces from some of the most renowned choreographers of our times, with original creations by Spanish artists, as well as neoclassical works and other academic dance languages. The combination of the most contemporary profiles with more academic ones lies at the heart of today's CND and has been one of its most characteristic achievements since the current management took the helm in September 2011. José Carlos Martinez's concern for attracting a growing audience both through educational programs and numerous parallel activities are the mark of a CND in the process of expansion. Proof of this lies in the growing number of performances and spectator rates, as well as national and international commitments already closed for the next few years.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COMPANY

Compañía Nacional de Danza was founded in 1979 under the name of Ballet Clásico Nacional (Ballet Nacional Clásico) with Víctor Ullate as its first Director. His successors in the post were María de Ávila and the extraordinary Russian ballerina Maya Plisétskaya. Then, in 1990, Nacho Duato was named Artistic Director of the company.
Duato’s appointment brought innovative change to the company. Up to his departure in 2010, he contributed forty-five choreographic works, praised by critics worldwide.
After one year under the artistic direction of Hervé Palito, the Compañía Nacional de Danza appointed its current Artistic Director, José Carlos Martínez. He took office on September 1st, 2011, after leaving his post as Principal Dancer from the Paris Opera Ballet.
José Carlos Martínez's project for the Compañía Nacional de Danza is to promote dance and to make this art form better known. His repertory is wide, ranging from classical and neoclassical ballet to modern choreographic language, within a setting of full artistic and creational freedom. It embraces both new Spanish and international creations, drawing in new audiences and boosting the company's national and international projection.
