José Manuel Alvarez arrived in Barcelona when he was only 4 years old where he began his training and profession.

Bailes Colaterales (2019) is his first company proposal touring worldwide as well as Cruces in co-production with tanzhaus nrw and Dansa Metropolitana (2020), and the participatory proposal El Rumbòdrom (2021) premiered at Fira de Manresa.

He has collaborated with La Fura dels Baus, Antonio Canales, the musical group Las Migas, Pedro Javier González, the tap dancer Roxane Butterfly, the company Increpación Danza and the tar master Hamid Khabbazi.
