Patricia Guerrero (Albayzín, Granada, 1990) knows flamenco dance in her own home: at three years old she starts her first training in her mother’s academy and her formative process has been enriched with contributions from many different masters, assimilating dance classical and classic Spanish at the same time as flamenco dance. This precocity in learning has also had its scenic parallelism. His first public performance was at the Peña La Platería, when he was only 8 years old. Shortly after, he already shared the stage with Juana Amaya at the Festival Flamenco del Albayzín. At the age of 15 he joined the Flamenco Studies Center run by Mario Maya, whose company he was touring as part of the Diálogo del Amargo cast.
