The special performance of one of the best dancers in the world will take place in Cardamomo on April 19 and 20.
Cardamomo tablao flamenco proudly receives Antonio Canales.
We have no doubt that Antonio Canales will feel like in family because some of the artists who make up the Cardamomo flamenco group, such as Laura Abadía or David Jiménez, have already shared the stage with Antonio Canales working in the artist’s own company (Ballet Flamenco Antonio Canales), with shows that promote flamenco art and culture such as Torero, A cuerda y tacón or Gitano, in which the great Sara Baras also participated.
Antonio Canales descends from a saga of artists, and it can be said with certainty that he carries the «duende» (flamingo spirit) his veins as he is from Sevilla, a dancer, choreographer and actor.
He began his professional career in the world of flamenco dancing in the Ballet Nacional Español, where he learned precise technique, and stood out among his peers for several years and stood out among his colleagues for several years.
Over time, he became a soloist bailaor (Flamenco dancer) and moved to Paris to join the Ballet Maguy Marín.
It will be after these experiences when Antonio Canales became famous as one of the best flamenco dancers in the world, receiving numerous international recognitions.
In 1992 he created his own flamenco dance company and debuted with an unquestionable success thanks to choreographies such as Siempre Flamenco or A ti Carmen Amaya.
One year after, he premiered Torero, a Flamenco show with which he made a successful tour around Canada, and which will later be performed in Spain over 700 times. Such is the triumph he acquires with this show, that in 1995 he was nominated for the Emmy Awards.
The same year Antonio Canales acquires the National Dance Prize in Spain.
Since then, the bailaor has not stopped creating and dancing. Taking his particular and heartfelt dance to all corners of the world. And he continues to do so.
