   Paul, Blanca Li is a female Spanish choreographer, who now lives in France. As a teen-ager she was in the Spanish gymnastics national team (and still is quite athletic, with very large shoulders...) Later she spent some time in New York, studying modern dance. She's been living and working in France since around 1993. Her last programs have been quite successful, she's also staged some operas, and done some choreographies for movies.

Here are some pages about her:

and here's a review about one of her programs, from "The dance insider3:

I haven't seen many of her works. What I saw ranged from entertaining to boring... Her style isn't balletic at all, it's a mixture between modern dance, flamenco, cabaret and a bit everything (and often it relies more on staging and theatrical effects than on the choreography itself).
