"TONI" is a 36 years old talented bailaor, born in Lebanon and currently living in Seville (Spain). He started his career as a first class dancer with Caracalla, and stayed with him from 1993 to 2003. In 1998 he discovered the flamenco and it was love at the first sight! He took classes here and there with flamenco teachers working with the Caracalla Company as well as with Maria Jesus de Melero who was living in Beirut at that time. In 2004 he decided to live his passion to the fullest, and he went to Sevilla (Spain) where he began to study flamenco professionally, and remained there until now.
His professors and sometimes partners are among the most famous flamenco stars in Spain, like Manuel Betanzos, Angel Atienza, Isabel Bayon, Soraya Clavijo, Juan De Los Reyes, Juan Polvillo, Pilar Ortega, Torombo, Jose Galvan, Almudena Serrano, Maribel Ramos..
