Originary from the city of Bogota (Colombia), at the age of eight Lorena Salinas started her training in roller figure skating, having the opportunity to participate in different national and international competitions. Nine years later, she meets the dance and decides to change her path to dedicate herself to it. Beginning her training at the District University of Bogota and two years later at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York (USA), it is between 2016 and 2019 that she deepened and focused her training as an interpreter at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal (QB, Canada), where she collaborates with choreographers and teachers like Isabelle Poirier, Virginie Brunelle, Marc Boivin, Sophie Corriveau, Darryl Tracy, Jamie Wright, Anne Lebeau, Linda Rabin, Edgar Zendejas, Angélique Willkie, among others.
Attracted by the physical, logical and human aspects of the dancer, Lorena continues to work and enrich her knowledge as an artist. She aspires to become a complete integral intepreter, to be able to spread her experience in several proyects whether in Montreal and the international.
