Simón el Rubio - Biography
Simón is a respected flamenco guitarist and highly accomplished flamenco dancer.
He grew up in a theatrical background since his parents were both Royal Ballet dancers and teachers. As a child he started out with violin and piano, but soon found his calling was flamenco.
During the 1980’s he was taught by a number of acclaimed guitarists and dancers including Paco Pena, Manolo Sanlucar, Javier LaTorre and Carmen Cortes. His mentor in flamenco dance was Mariano Torres from Madrid whose company he later joined. He spent many years learning at grass roots level in flamenco gatherings, such as in the Peña Flamenca de Estepona, before moving to Jerez de la Frontera, where he now lives and teaches. He is also a lawyer-linguist as it happens, but his Bohemian temperament led him to form his own touring dance company in the 1990's, with tours to places such as Manila, Hong Kong and even mainland China. He performs throughout Spain and Europe.

El Baile por Alegrías - actuación del grupo Simón el Rubio en Jerez

Te escribo para felicitarte por tu gran actuación del pasado sábado dia 24. Me gustó mucho esa salida a escena con tanta fuerza, y con un taconeo rápido y seguro. Bailas muy bien, tanto es así que ojalá supiera yo bailar, siendo Jerezano como soy, la cuarta parte de lo que tú. Por tanto te sigo animando para que sigas "pa lante" porque te mereces más....Espero verte otra vez y pronto por los escenarios. Luis Barranco Mendoza
