He was the essence of the Flamenco dance... He prepared me physically.
His foot technique and his way of making you dance, made me grow as a dancer.

After his foot technique exercises, which consisted in stamping and hammering the heels and soles of the feet across the dance floor, he would mark out a specific part in the melody of the dance and the footwork that went along with it.
I would then repeat and repeat what he had just shown me until he considered that this part was really “danced” with precision and true flamenco feeling.
From his daughter, La Farruca, I learned more than I could describe in words. It was an extremely important stage for me. The classes were individual.
A few students would accompany Farruco and his family to festivals where he would invite us to participate in his performances
