Antonio Vázquez is a flamenco dancer. Since 2018, he is part of the cast of artists of El Palacio Andaluz. It started in this world by chance. Blessed chance. At the age of 6, his aunt took him, along with his brother, to the academy where he learned to play castanets. He did not want to go, but in the end he got hooked on flamenco and has not been able to leave it.
In Morón de la Frontera (Seville), his hometown, he started his idyll with this art. He continued his training at the Professional Dance Conservatory of Seville and the Superior Dance Conservatory of Málaga, as well as holding different courses with professional flamenco and dance artists.
With 15 years, he traveled the world as a professional dancer. He has toured different tablaos in Málaga, Madrid and Seville. He has also participated with several companies on international tours in Germany, France, England, China and Morocco. He won the first prize of the Andalusian Young Flamenco Competition, organized by the Provincial Federation of Seville of Flamenco Entities, and was semifinalist of the prestigious International Festival “Cante de Minas” in La Unión (Murcia).
He has combined his training as a flamenco dancer with studies in Pedagogy and Nursing. But “his life is flamenco”. They say he is an elegant dancer. Defend that each artist must create their own style and that a good professional has to master all the elements of the dance. In it he works daily.
He has shared the stage with one of his references, Antonio ‘El Pipa’. Dream fulfilled. Admire Antonio ‘El Bailarín’, Farruquito or Manuela Carrasco. He has not yet given up the possibility of being part of the National Ballet of Spain or the Ballet Flamenco de Andaluz. You have plenty left over.
