The Roseta Mauri Internacional Dance Competition, held since 2002, stems from the urge to reveal the talent of young dancers and to give impulse for their artistic carrer. It’s a international competition and the one with the most significant financial dowries in Spain.
The Theatre Fortuny Foundation in collaboration with the Fortuny Theatre of Reus held this competition every two years and after twelve years of trajectory and nine accomplished editions, the Roseta Mauri Competition has transformed the Fortuny Theatre into a scenario of opportunities. Previous editions’ winners and finalists have reached their goals: to dance in prestigious companies. This competition is addressed to dancers of any nationality, between the ages of 16 and 21 years old (2006 – 2001), including those with birthdays in the year 2022 can participate.
The registration deadline is 27 February 2022!

Arantxa Argüelles made her debut at the age of 11 with her hometown’s company, Ballet Clásico of Zaragoza, and two years later she joined the Ballet Clásico Nacional de España. Throughout her carreer as a dancer, she has been a principal dancer at the Ballet Nacional of Spain, Berlin Opera’s Ballet and at the Royal Danish Ballet —in these two last companies under the direction of Peter Schaufuss—. In 1996, Argüelles toured with Moscow’s Stanislavsky Ballet with the La Sylphide production, performing as dancer for the last time in Madrid. Argüelles was a regular invited artist at the Festival de Ballet de La Habana (Cuba) and she has worked with renown ballet masters such as Maya Plisetskaya and danced with outstanding dancers like Julio Bocca, Charles Jude or Laurent Hilaire in international galas. In 1997, she was appointed Artistic Director of the Ballet de Zaragoza, a position she hold for two years. Currently, Arantxa Argüelles has her own studio in Zaragoza, where she teaches ballet and pilates, and she is also regularly invited to teach in several dance companies such the Ballet of La Scala of Milan.
Jone San Martín studied with Menxu Medel in San Sebastian (Spain), at Institut del Teatre of Barcelona and at Maurice Béjart’s Mudra School in Brussels. Despite having started her professional career in Spain —she danced in the National Ballet of Spain in 1987-88— she has mainly worked in Belgium and Germany, where she has danced in companies such Archipel Sud, José Besprosvany, Jacopo Godani’s company, The Ballet of Charleroi, and Ulmer Theater with Phillippe Talard. In 1992, William Forsythe invited San Martín to join the former Frankfurt Ballet and since then his career as a performer and soloist dancer has been closely linked to the American choreographer. Since its creation in 2005, Jone San Martín is part of The Forsythe Company.
Her artistic restlessness has driven her to collaborate within the fine arts’ field, the cinema and video: invited to open the Francis Bacon exhibition along with Forsythe in the Museum Haus der Kunst Munich, creating for the painter Angelica Gilbert, the sculptor Bruno Fegero or Tamara Cirz, among others. In the cinema and video field she has collaborated in works such as The mind machine of Dr. Forsythe, Jonemanak or Meat me. As a choreographer she has presented dance works such as Ser, estar o parecer, Juana la otra, Legítimo Rezo, Jugo, Any Body Sounds, among others. In 2006, Jone San Martín, received the Artistic Career Award from the Dance Professionals Association of Gipuzkoa in the Basque Country, and in 2016 she received a Carte Blanche from her hometown, the city of San Sebastian.
As a pianist he has specialised in dance accompaniament and composition, working and collaborating with companies in such as Jeu Ballet du France, Última Vez (Belgium), Rosas (Belgium), and in companies based in New York like José Limón’s or Merce Cuningham Studio. He has accompanied renown ballet and dance masters and choreographers such as Maria de Ávila, Carmen Roche, Víctor Ullate, Carmina Ocaña, Anne Therese de Keersmaker, Susanne Linke, Dominique Mercy, Elizabeth Corbett, Guillermina Coll, Marta Munsó, among others.
