Guillermo de la Chica López was born in Granada, Spain. He began to take ballet and modern theater classes with the dance program regulated by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). At the age of twelve, he started travelling to England every summer to get more knowledge about other dance fields, such as commercial dance with Ryan Jenkins and musical theater.
In 2017, he attended the “Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst” in Frankfurt am Main, to start his studies in the Bachelor Dance program. Here he developed his ballet technique and gained valuable skills in international folklore, and improvisation techniques like contact improvisation and Forsythe improvisation. Over the years, he received significant artistic impulses working with choreographers and renowned people as Nora Kimball-Mentzos, Prof. Andrea Tallis, Georg Reischl, Ayman Harper, Regina van Berkel, Prof. Dieter Heitkamp, Prof. Marc Spradling, Johannes Wieland, Paul White, Emanuel Gat, Jean-Hugues Assohoto, Prof. Hannah Shakti Bühler and Iván Pérez.
In addition to his studies in Frankfurt, he participated in several contemporary workshops, among which he had the opportunity to work with people such as Iñaki Azpillaga, Isabelle Schad, Rakesh Sukesh, Luke Jessop and Martin Kilvadi. Furthermore, he really enjoyed the very inspirational Gaga workshop received by Ariadna Montfort, where he got in touch with this movement language for first time. What is more, he has been attending a wider range of classes and workshops: Laban, Body mind presence, choreographic concepts with Emanuel Gat… Also, Guillermo is often asked to participate in professional projects, such as “Johann Faustus” by Hanns Eisler and “Zukunft Tanz - Abend der jungen Choreografie”.
He not only loves dance, but also expressing himself on stage in one way or another (he feels quite comfortable singing and acting with an audience in front). Writing is another huge tool he always turns to whenever he feels like. This made him start writing his first novel at the age of 11 and win three literary awards (2013, 2015 and 2017). In addition, photography began to interest him as well. Lately he did some collaborations as a model in different projects. An example of this is “Cruising” (Montevideo, 2019), by the Spanish artist Alejandria Cinque, where he could play with concepts like nudity and queer history.
