“It’s not an authentic optimism that one which comes from whom trustingly expects reality to come to be as big as his dreams; it is, however, that one who is able to love his dream as a reality”. Wimpi (Uruguayan writer and journalist 1906-1956).

“If you cannot fly, therefore run; if you cannot run, therefore walk; if you cannot walk, therefore drag. However, whatever you do, continue moving forward”.

“The magic of fighting battles beyond what is humanly bearable is based on the magic of what it comes from risking everything for a dream that nobody else will be able to see, except you”.

“The future remains in those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.

“No dreamer is too small, no dream is too big”.

bio-joaquin

Joaquín Grilo was born in Jerez de la Frontera in 1968 on Pozo del Olivar Street. He started his first dance studies at Cristóbal “El Jerezano” School. In 1981 he continued training at Fernando Belmonte and Paco del Río Dance Studio, where in a short time he would take part in Ballet Albarizuela, in which, in 1983 and at only fifteen years old, he started one of his first tours as a lead dancer.
In 1986 he performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. In 1987 he danced at the Royal Alcazars of Seville in front of Their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain and Their Majesties the King and Queen of England, on their first visit to Spain.
In 1990 he moved to Madrid, where he performed as a solo dancer at the Teatro Ballet Español Company. He was also hired to dance as a solo dancer at the Young Flamenco Exhibition in Mérida.
In 1992, he performed at Zambra, a famous tablao or Flamenco stage in Madrid with the show Cinco Bailaores (Five Flamenco Dancers). In that year, he performed as a lead dancer in Ballet Luisillo in the show “Luna de sangre” (Blood Moon), at the Villa Theatre in Madrid. He later collaborated in the Lola Flores spectacle.
In 1992 and 1993, he created his own solo show “En el Candela” and it was first performed in Taipei, Taiwan. In March 1993, having returned from Taiwan, he began to rehearse the show Zambra with the five bailaores, or Flamenco dancers, to later perform at an annual festival in Utrecht, Holland. He was also asked to take part in the film Flamenco directed by Carlos Saura.
In 1993 Vicente Amigo asked him to participate in his spectacle “De mi corazón al aire”. That year, he became the guest artist in a show created by Joaquín Cortés called “Zibayí”.
In the time between 1994 and 1999, he took part in the group of Paco de Lucía, touring all around the world and sharing the stage with other musicians such as Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent, José Mª Bandera, Juan Manuel Cañizares, Rubén Dantas, Ramón de Algeciras, Pepe de Lucía and Duquende.
