María de Ávila would also commission works from the American dancer and choreographer Ray Barra who soon after assumed the director role at the company. In 1990, Nacho Duato was installed as artistic director of what was now called the Compañía Nacional de Danza — a position he held for twenty years. His incorporation brought about an innovative change to the company’s history and makeup, with the inclusion of new, original choreographies within its repertoire, together with long-standing works. Hervé Palito succeeded Duato as artistic director & in 2011, José Carlos Martínez began his tenure as director. In 2019, the INAEM — the Performing Arts and Music Institute of Spain’s Ministry of Culture — announced Joaquín De Luz as the company’s new artistic director.
