We are honored to introduce the second round of #Global ConversationsDDP — Navigating Difficult Times with an interview with Tamara Rojo, ballet legend, QUEEN of fouettes (among other things) with the highest arches in the ‘biz, and artistic director and lead principal of the acclaimed English National Ballet.
Tamara Rojo has been Artistic Director and Lead Principal Dancer of the English National Ballet since 2012. Her training and career began in Madrid with Victor Ullate. After winning a Gold Medal at the Paris International Dance Competition and a unanimous awarding of a Special Jury Award in 1996, she was invited to join Scottish Ballet. The next year, Tamara joined English National Ballet, where she would dance as a principal before being invited to join the Royal Ballet in 2000. Tamara earned her master’s degree of Theatrical Arts and a Bachelor of Dance Graduate with Honours from the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos de Madrid. Among her many awards are Spain’s three highest honors and a CBE. Her international career as a guest artist has taken her to many of the world’s most prestigious companies and theaters, and her leadership at ENB has overseen the opening of a new space for the company, countless performances at Royal Albert Hall, major tours, and all-female programs of mixed repertory ballets (She Said and She Persisted) to great international acclaim.
