“Thank you is the only thing I can say to all the audiences, dancers, ballet staff and all the departments in BRB, your support and love will always be appreciated by me. I am excited for the next chapter in my career, but of course, having spent the last 30 years as a dancer and 15 of those years in BRB, leading a company will be a big change for me.I have learnt so much from the many people I have had the pleasure of working with over my 15 years at BRB. I will do everything I can to pass on my knowledge and experiences in dance to the dancers of Ballet de Santiago with honesty and continued passion for this great art form.”
