In 1995 he came to the U.S. to study at the San Francisco Ballet School’s summer intensive. He then went on to become the youngest dancer to ever win a gold medal in the Prix de Lausanne. He returned to San Francisco Ballet School to complete his training when we was asked to join the company in 1998. He was promote to principal in 2002. In 2007 he joined New York City Ballet as a principal dancer. Today we talk with Gonzalo about his training in Spain, coming to the US at such a young age, deciding to take the leap of changing companies, and what he is considering doing after his ballet career.
