Leonor Leal

After a sound formation in classic dance, it is through flamenco that this unsettling and curious bailaora finds the motor of her personal artistic development. Her versatility and flexibility allows her to get in Antonio « El Pipa » company, Andres Marin, Javier Baron and the Andalouse Flamenco Ballet directed by Cristina Hoyos before she creates her own choreographies : Leoleole (2008), eLe eLe (2011), Mosaicos (2012), Naranja Amarga (2013), Fragil (2015), Nocturno (2018), En talleres (2019).
Invited in all of the biggest flamenco manifestations in Europe (Biennale of Seville and Netherland, festivals of Jerez, Dusseldorf, Nîmes …), she wins various prices as a solist : a Dancer of Excellence (Madrid Flamenco 2008) and Best Artist Revelation (Jerez’s festival 2011).

She achieves in 2016 a Master in Stage Practice and Visual Culture in Madrid  and presents her teacher-researcher study through lectures and a book author illustated by Raul Guridi. Mixing her flamenco teaching and artistic carrer, she is often invited by schools and international festivals.
