All levels workshops with dancer Nino de los Reyes from Spain, January 19-21, 2018!
Based in Madrid, Nino de los Reyes is a rising star in the world of contemporary flamenco. His first memories are of his parents, master dancer/teachers Ramón de los Reyes and Clara Ramona, rehearsing in a studio at Boston’s now defunct Piano Factory. He was performing professionally by age 3, and trained in flamenco and ballet at the legendary Amor de Dios in Madrid, where he now frequently gives classes. He completed his training at the Mariemma Professional Royal Conservatory of dance.
Nino has toured with Eduardo Serrano’s EL GÜITO company, with Carmen Cortés, Javier Barón and Tito Losada among others. He has been featured as a guest artist at concerts by musicians Pepe Habichuela, Josemi Carmona, Guadiana, Paquete, Jerónimo, Miguel el Rubio, Jesús del Rosario, Camaron de Pitita and Ramon el Portugués, and master singer/composer Enrique Morente.
He toured with Tony Gatlif’s (director of Latcho Drom) show Vertiges and appears in the film of the same name.
Despite his youth, Nino de los Reyes has already staged four of his own shows. Flamenco Esencia, created in 2000 when he was only 15 years old, toured Spain, Greece and Japan. Hombres Flamencos, which featured his brother Isaac de los Reyes and Alfonso Losa, was presented at the Boston Ciclorama in 2003. In 2010, his show Origen garnered three awards at the prestigious “Certamen de coreografia de Danza Española y Flamenco”, one of the most important competitions for young choreographers in Spain, held annually in Madrid: best solo choreography, best original music, and most promising young flamenco choreographer.
Nino's most recent show, Inside, had its US premiere in March 2016 at Joe's Pub in New York City, and played to packed houses in Phoenix, Chicago and Los Angeles.
The extraordinary musicality of Nino's footwork, along with his unique sense of and mastery of rhythm, have led to invitations to work with, among others, Latin Grammy Award winners Juan Jose Suarez "Paquete", bass player for guitarist Paco de Lucia, and world-renowned flutist Jorge Pardo. He collaborates regularly on recordings with recognized producers such as multi Grammy Award-winner Javier Limon.
In 2013, along with flamenco artists Oscar de los Reyes (no relation) and Sergio Martinez, he took part in a recording session of flamenco rhythm and footwork for legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon. This recording, and notably Nino's footwork, features prominently in Mr. Simon's highly acclaimed new album "Stranger to Stranger", released on June 3rd, 2016.
An experienced teacher with a broad knowledge of all aspects of flamenco, Nino has taught classes and workshops worldwide to dancers at all levels of experience.
