Farruquito: born to dance
For Farruquito, flamenco tradition is truly in the blood. His father was the singer known as "El Moreno", while his mother was a dancer who went by the name of "La Farruca". He himself gets his name from his grandfather, "El Farruco", one of the greatest flamenco dancers of all time, inheriting the name in its diminutive form. The stage is thus almost a natural habitat for the dancer born Juan Manuel Fernandez Montoya, and he appeared on New York City’s Broadway at just four years old. The young dancer appeared alongside his legendary grandfather as well as in the seminal film "Flamenco" by director Carlos Saura, establishing himself as an elite-level dancer by the age of eleven. Just four years later Montoya premiered his first show, "Raices Flamencas/Flamenco Roots", at London’s Royal Festival Hall, going on to tour around Europe and Asia and being celebrated by audiences and critics as one of the purest examples of flamenco for generations. Matching his incredible flamenco heritage with his own dancing skills, witnessing this dancer is essential for both lovers of the dance tradition and newcomers to it.

Keeping the flamenco tradition alive
The dancer often performs on stage with his troupe "Los Farrucos", which includes many members of his family. They have accumulated a dedicated following around the world, particularly in the USA, where in 2001 Montoya was named "the best artist to have set foot in the Big Apple" by the New York Times. The dancer has accumulated a number of awards from the most prestigious flamenco institutions in his native Spain and is recognised as the figurehead of the flamenco dance tradition, having been trained by his legendary grandfather to inherit the role after Farruco’s death in 1997. The dancer has experienced many tragedies and hardships in his personal life, but this translates into the passion and depth of emotion found in the elegance and grace of his dance. Farruquito has been an elite-level dancer since the age of 25 and has reinterpreted the essence of the gypsy flamenco style for a new generation. If you’re a fan of modern interpretations of flamenco from the likes of Antonio Canales or Rosalía, discover the origins of the tradition with this once-in-a-lifetime dance talent.
