A daring dancer, choreographer, musician, and stage director, Juan Kruz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola is hailed as one of today’s most fascinating artists in the field of contemporary dance. Born in Legazpi, Spain, he began his musical studies as a singer, at the San Sebastián Conservatory, and later at the Early Music School in Amsterdam.
A stunning self-taught dancer, he was quickly spotted by several renowned choreographers in Europe, such as Pieter Scholten, Emio Greco, Arthur Rosenfeld, Luc Dunberry and Lloyd Newson, all of whom invited him to collaborate with their dance companies.
Since 1996, Juan Kruz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola is a member of the Sasha Waltz Dance Company in Berlin, where he participates in numerous choreographic shows and tours, while also collaborating with other companies on various projects. In addition to his work as choreographer and performer, he is also a guest professor at the Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen, and he regularly gives masterclasses around the world.

In addition to the Andalusian Flamenco Ballet and the Cie Danza Larreal, he was invited by Flamencos en Route as a solo dancer to perform as part of a large international tour.
