The Ramon de los Reyes Spanish Dance Theater is very happy to present an eight week session of flamenco classes with Madrid-based dancer/teacher Nino de los Reyes. Classes range from absolute beginner to advanced. No registration necessary.

About Nino: Born in Boston and 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 Madrid's legendary Amor de Dios, where he now frequently gives classes. Nino de los Reyes' show "Origen" won the 2010 Certamen de coreografia de Danza Española y Flamenco for best solo choreography, best original music, and most promising young flamenco choreographer. He has toured with Eduardo Serrano’s El Guito company, Carmen Cortés, Javier Barón and Tito Losada among others, and has performed as a guest artist for musicians Pepe Habichuela, Josemi Carmona, Guadiana, Paquete, Jerónimo, Miguel el Rubio, Jesús del Rosario, Camaron de Pitita and Ramon el Portugués.

The extraordinary musicality of Nino's footwork, along with his unique sense of rhythm, which is informed by many different genres, have led to invitations to work with, among others, Latin Grammy Award winners Juan Jose Suarez "Paquete", Alain Perez, bass player for guitarist Paco de Lucia, and world-renowned flutist Jorge Pardo. He collaborates regularly on recordings with world-renowned producers such as multi Grammy Award-winning Javier Limon.

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. Nino's very unique footwork is featured on Paul Simon's highly acclaimed new album Stranger to Stranger, released in June 2016. Nino will perform in Chick Corea's Flamenco Heart at The Blue Note in New York in November 2016 as part of Mr. Corea's 75th birthday residency there.
