Sol León joined NDT2 in 1987 after graduating from the National Ballet Academy of Madrid. Two years later she moved into NDT1. León continued to dance up until 2003, when she decided to fully devote herself to being the house choreographer of NDT together with Paul Lightfoot. León and Lightfoot have been a choreographic duo since 1989 and together they have created more than 60 world premieres for the NDT, which they have received many prestigious awards for. From 2002 until 2020 León and Lightfoot were house choreographers of NDT. In addition, from 2012 until 2020, León was also the artistic advisor for the company. With the production Schmetterling in 2022 two works by the choreographer duo will be shown for the first time at the Bayerisches Staatsballett.
