His choreographic prowess earned him 2nd prize as emerging choreographer at Alcala de Henares (Madrid). He is currently a soloist in the Montreal production of Don Juan with dancer/choreographers Angel Rojas and Carlos Rodriguez, and returns to Forever Flamenco for an exciting evening of clasico español and flamenco dance along with an electrifying line-up of musicians and dancers, including the US stage debut of cantaor Guillermo Gonzalez direct from Sevilla.

Now in its 9th Smash Year, Forever Flamenco is the prime ongoing flamenco event in Los Angeles. The LA WEEKLY raves:  “The Fountain has certainly cemented its stature as L.A.’s most significant venue for flamenco. Kudos are also due to the rotating series of artistic directors who continue to attract the best dancers from L.A.’s vibrant community as well as significant out-of-town guests.”

Since 2011, the Fountain Theatre’s Forever Flamenco is presented in the lovely 300-seat Gallery Theatre in Barnsdall Park, the venue perched on an enchanting hilltop overlooking Hollywood. A charming and romantic setting for such a passionate art form!
