«I feel very identified with the concept of Las Carboneras»,

I feel very identified with the concept and the way of working that is here, the way that Ana and Tacha have to work and enjoy on stage and, furthermore, I feel that I can always develop and experience new things to continue learning and advancing.

«The tablao is essential in all aspects»

, says the bailaor from Cádiz
«I think tablao tablao is a key key to the evolution and development of any artist in relation to flamenco, not only in dance, but also In the toque or in the cante. For me the tablao is as if it were a laboratory, in the sense that it is the place where I put into practice all my knowledge, my own formulas and structures, and my foot mechanisms, etc. That is why I refer to tablao as a laboratory. It is also a place where you can accept your mistakes and learn from them to, little by little, give yourself time and perform for the benefit of oneself, in continuous search for your own identity. Being daily working gives you a great experience and, above all, a knowledge of your dance, a very important awareness of your dance. The fact of being with the public so close obviously is an enriching and very positive experience. There is no fourth wall that can exist in certain large theaters, tablao is a small place and that approach with the public is quite important. In short, I think it is a very important school for all the flamenco artists we have to go through. I think it is essential in all respects».
