Angel Martinez Hernandez


Angel started dancing in his home town of Seville. He was selected to join Los Seises, a group of ten children who dance in  cathedrals on religious feast days, remaining in the group until he was too old to perform this role. He carried on dancing, joining the Andalusian Dance Centre in 1998 and studying there until 2005. While there he received a grant to study at ITDanza Barcelona. From 2005 to 2007, he joined the European D.A.N.C.E. programme run by Wayne McGregor, William Forsythe, Frédéric Flamand and Angelin Preljocaj. While there he won two prizes at the Madrid Choreography Competition for a solo Cartas para Wendy (2006) and a duet In2 (2007).

Angel joined the Ballet National de Marseille under Frédéric Flamand in 2007. At that time, he had the opportunity to dance with Wayne McGregor/random (2008/2009). He finally came back at the Ballet National de Marseille in 2009.
