His knowledge of Flamenco guitar and composition has shaped the evident personality of his movements as a dancer…

At the age of 12 he first performed in the Teatro de la Zarzuela in the play Carmen, with the Rafael Aguilar company, along with Teresa Berganza. He later worked for four years in the company of Antonio Canales, performing the works Torero, Narciso, La Cenicienta, La Casa de Bernarda Alba, Raíz and Gitano on Spanish and European stages. Since 1994 he has been involved in the foundation of the company Arrieritos, having created and edited various productions: Arrieritos Somos, En la noche todos los gatos son pardos, Entablao, Diario de un Abrigo, El Rapto de Europa, performed on several stages of Spain and abroad. In 1995 he joined the dance troupe of the Italian pop singer Gala. At that time he also worked in Flamenco venues of Madrid and Barcelona, in performance of his own creation. In 2001 he travelled to Japan with the El Guito company and, the following year, he toured once again with the company of Lola Greco.

A year later he took part in the Edinburgh festival with Compañía Arrieritos and began working in Madrid with the company Adelante Artística and the production Hermanos de Baile. This show led to his appearance on several TV programmes, such as Fama on Cuatro TV, as a choreographer.

In the following 3 years he organised Flamenco dance classes in London, Rome, Paris and Athens, combining his artistic agenda with performances in Barcelona and Madrid.
