She was born in Granada in 1964, and studied at the Martha Graham school in New York. In 1992 she settled in France, and a year later set up her own contemporary dance company. In 1999 she staged 'Macadam Macadam', a work which soon became a landmark in the genre. She also brought her creative talents to the world of film, advertising and video-clip. She wrote and directed her first short film, 'Angoisse' in 1998. 'Le Défi' (2001), a musical hip-hop comedy, was her debut feature film. In September 2006 she was appointed artistic director of the Andalusia Dance Centre in Seville, a position she held until 2010.
