Lopez joined the Lubovitch company this year. He was born in Madrid where he trained at the Victor Ullate School. At the age of 15, he joined the Victor Ullate Ballet, and was promoted to Principal Dancer in 1996. That same year Lopez won the Silver Medal at the Seventh International Dance Competition in Paris. In 2001, he joined American Ballet Theatre where he danced as a Soloist from 2003 until 2011. He performed many full-length classics, and had the opportunity to work with John Neumeier, Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris, Stanton Welch, Christopher Wheeldon, Aszure Barton, Alexei Ratmansky, James Kudelka, Jorma Elo and William Forsyth. In 2004, he was awarded the Les Etoiles de Ballet 2000 Prize in Cannes. Lopez has participated in international ballet galas such as “World Stars Gala” in Budapest, “Miami’s International Ballet Festival,” the “Positano Dance Festival” and “Stars of the 21st Century” in Toronto. As a guest artist, he has performed with the National Ballet of Georgia, The National Ballet of Cuba, Ash Contemporary Dance, Espace O.B.S of Japan, Inoue Ballet Foundation and Cuban Classical ballet of Miami. Having worked with Lubovitch on “Othello,” Lopez is very excited to work with him again.
