Born in Donostia (Spain), Iñaki’s initial approach to dance was Bask folk dance. His dance formation comprises Classical Ballet studies, Jazz and Modern & Contemporary dance. Iñaki studied composition as well as improvisation and lighting design at Nikolais/Louis school in New York. Winning the first prize in the VI Choreographic Contest of Madrid gave him the opportunity to create his first production “Diálogo de sordos”. For the past 25 years he has been involved in one way or another in the work of Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez. His contemporary dance teaching is based on the one it got developed during the years 80s and 90s in Europe and the courses aim to approach that professional experience. Currently he combines assisting to dance creations with his pedagogical engagement. Iñaki has developed an off course choreographic career developing research formats mixed with personal concerns framed within teaching and vocational dance schools.
