Ángel Reyes interview
«From my training I would like to highlight the learning I had and the hours of study shared with a great partner, Estefanía Cuevas, dancer and friend who has helped me a lot in my professional and personal career. Teachers that stand out … Antonio Canales, Jesús Carmona, La Lupi … In general, everyone. I like to learn daily from both teachers and all my colleagues, I am of the opinion that you never go to bed without knowing something new.
»In my career I have many moments that I will never forget, among them when one of my current referents (Jesús Carmona) tells me that he wants to count on me for his production” Impetu’s “, I did not believe it. Another unforgettable moment was my time in the public market of La Unión at the Cante de Las Minas Festival, visiting the City Center in New York, the Sadler’s Wells in London … Many moments to remember.
»Tablao dance … For me, as a bailaor in continuous training, the tablao is like my house, it is where I feel most at ease, where I try to release my deepest truth, where I expose myself to an open heart. For me, the tablao is what I knew before, when I was 16 years old, I went to a tablao for the first time and today, 10 years later, I still think that life gives me the chance to get into a tablao day after day. And, if in that tablao you breathe and live an atmosphere of reality and truth, that is priceless. For me personally your home Las Carboneras met me just 3 years ago and has given me great moments and great learning. Thank you for having me as part of you».
