JOAN TENA, A CAREER IN DANCE


SEBASTIÀ GASCH AWARD OF HONOR 2006

“For a long time Joan Tena has been an key figure in the world of dance in Catalonia , whether as dancer, choreographer or dance teacher. Works such as ‘Ballets inoblidables' and ‘El mandarí meravellós' and a long list of pupils are his legacy.”

Joan Tena, dancer and choreographer, with a career stretching over 50 years, was one of the pioneers in founding an independent dance company in Barcelona . He was a creator who avoided perceived wisdom, and created ground-breaking initiatives. His dream was clear: to create a National Ballet of Catalonia , for which he worked for so long.
