Spain is to try imitating the success of Britain's Royal Ballet by establishing a national classical ballet company to tap a well of talented dancers who have been forced abroad.

Tamara Rojo, principal dancer at the Royal Ballet, is reportedly being targeted as the new artistic director of a company that is backed by everyone from Spain's royal family to the socialist prime minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.

The country is unique in western Europe in not having a national ballet company.
