The company Sergio Bernal, hand in hand with its artistic director Ricardo Cue, conceives the company from a premise that comes to satisfy an audience that demands emotions. Creating a show with the purpose of reaching international dimensions in Spanish dance and flamenco, through the neoclassical style, placing it at the height of the best performances of classical dance works is the strongest commitment.

The co-director of the company Sergio Bernal, principal dancer of the National Ballet of Spain (2012-2019), is the only dancer who coming from a Spanish and flamenco dance training has represented classical ballets such as “The Swan” with magnificent acceptance of critics and audiences. On him the premise of this company is materialized.
Combining the strengths, knowledge and experiences of each of the team members favors compliance with this premise. The objective is to enhance Spanish Dance based on virtuosity, versatility and variety of the different styles of Spanish dance and music ranging from bolera school, Spanish classical and flamenco.
The international presence of Spain covers many areas, from science, art, sports and other fields of culture. There is only one field in which our country has no rival: Spanish dance and flamenco. And it is in this concept that the company finds another of its purposes.

Sergio Bernal’s years of experience, lead him to consider new challenges. He feels obliged to deliver everything learned to a real audience that fills theaters in the world. That is why the company is currently
working on a project that gives life to one of the most recognized fashion designers in the history of fashion. A creator who fell in love with dance and music and who dressed Roland Petit’s choreographies for the Paris Opera and made a “Russian collection” inspired by Russian Ballets. Maya Plisetskaya was one of his muses. “La Rose Malade” choreographed by Roland Petit was dressed by this designer
