Jairo Amaya is an internationally acclaimed dancer and teacher based in Jerez. Starting his professional dance career at the age of 16, he initially toured as part of the dance company of Maria del Mar Moreno and then as a soloist and teacher across Europe, Israel and the USA. When in his native Jerez, Jairo works in all of the most popular tablaos and penas (flamenco venues) as well as teaching in his own studios.His style is distinctively Jerezano, combining strength and force with the ‘sonequette’ and musical quality that is famous in this ‘cradle of flamenco’.
