Alicia Amatriain matured into one of the best ballerinas in the world at the John Cranko School and the Stuttgart Ballet, which has been a Porsche partner since 2012. Today, she stands at the pinnacle of her career.
The “Prix Benois de la Danse” is the Oscar among prizes for ballet dancers and Alicia Amatriain only recently joined the elite circle of winners. She received the international award in the “Female Dancer” category for her stupendous portrayal of the Devil in Demis Volpi’s “The Soldier’s Tale” and the role of Blanche DuBois in John Neumeier’s “A Streetcar Named Desire”. After her appointment as Kammertänzerin (dancer-laureate) by the State of Baden-Württemberg and the German Theatre Award “Der Faust” in the category “Best dance performer”, it is the Spaniard’s third award this season – an absolute top achievement which makes her a superstar in the ballet scene.
“It came as a total surprise to me. I just didn’t expect it. I was thrilled to bits,” said Alicia enthusiastically. Reid Anderson, Director of the Stuttgart Ballet, congratulated his Principal Female Dancer. “Alicia has worked very hard for many years. Her discipline and dedication to dance have made her into a world-class dancer and into a muse for many choreographers. I couldn’t be happier for her!”
