Antonio Canales

Great figure of flamenco ballet.

Antonio Canales was born in Seville in 1961.

By this time, Antonio was already an internationally recognised dancer and participated in more than fifty international works as a principal dancer, until he formed his own company, making his debut in Bilbao with the choreographies ‘A ti Carmen Amaya’ and ‘Siempre Flamenco’.
