Dancer and choreographer, formed by the most prestigious dance teachers in all styles: classical ballet, bolera school, Spanish classical, folklore, flamenco and contemporary dance. Honors in Spanish Dance at the Royal Conservatory of Dance Mariemma in Madrid.

He joined the National Ballet of Spain (BNE) in 1997 and three years later, he rose to the category of First Dancer. In 2011 and only 35 years old, he was appointed artistic director of the BNE, holding the position for eight years.

He created his own Antonio Najarro Company in 2001, for which he has choreographed four productions: Tango Flamenco (2002), Flamencoriental (2006), Jazzing Flamenco (2008) Suite Sevilla (2011) Alento (2020) and Querencia (2022).

A regular creator of pieces for great figures in figure skating, he obtains several Gold Medals at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics (2002) at the Boston World Championships (2016) and at the European Championships (2017 and 2019) for the Spanish Javier Fernández with the choreography “Malagueña”.

In 2018 he collaborates as a choreographer, together with the coach Mayu Fujiki, with the Spanish National Artistic Swimming Team in the choreography “Pasión Malagueña”.

Najarro is currently the largest representative of Dance in Spain, always projecting a modern image, innovative proposals of a very renewed Spanish classic, where plurality has characterized his creations, addressing large pedagogical projects, social action, fashion, painting and sport, giving great visibility to Dance in Media. In 2021, RTVE premieres its program “Un País En Danza”, conducted by himself.
