Angelina Ramirez is a flamenco dancer and teaching artist living in Tucson, Arizona. Ramirez’s artistic work explores what it means to be a queer, latina flamenca, practicing in a traditional Roma-Gitano form of dance. As a teaching artist, she is interested in the intersections of arts and healing, focusing on work with elders of all abilities and integrated flamenco with autistic individuals. She is devoted to promoting accessibility and eradicating ableism, racism and bigotry by practicing and promoting dialogue, acceptance and community participation. Along with teaching and performing Ramirez produces events and festivals and is currently the curator for the Traditional and Ethnic Dance Festival with the Southwest Folklife Alliance. Ramirez is an original member of Yjastros, the American Flamenco Repertory Company and has toured with world-renowned, New York-based company Noche Flamenca. Ramirez is a 2022 Dance/USA Artist Fellow. In 2021, she received the Master-Apprentice Artist Award through Southwest Folklife Alliance for her dedication and commitment to flamenco arts. Ramirez is a National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures fellow. In 2018, she received the Arizona Commission on the Arts’ Artist Research and Development Grant. Find out more at arflamenco.com
