Angelina Ramirez is a flamenco movement artist and teaching artist. Ramirez’s artistic work explores what it means to be a queer, latinx 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 for neurodivergent participants. Ramirez is a 2022 Dance/USA Artist Fellow and a 2017 National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures fellow. In 2021, Ramirez received the Master-Apprentice Artist Award through the Southwest Folklife Alliance for her dedication to flamenco arts. In 2018, she received the Arizona Commission on the Arts Artist Research and Development Grant to support the development of her evening-length work /SER/. Ramirez is an original member of Yjastros, the American Flamenco Repertory Company, and has toured with world-renowned, New York-based company Noche Flamenca. Along with teaching and performing, Ramirez produces events and festivals throughout Arizona.
