Flamenco is resilience in motion. An art form that grew from the diverse cultures and influences in Southern Spain, flamenco lyrics describe perseverance amidst hardship and the dance embodies strength. In this workshop, students will receive an overview of the history of flamenco, and then explore how flamenco movements, rhythms, and gestures help heal trauma and embody resilience. Blumenfeld will also speak about her experiences teaching flamenco to incarcerated women and flamenco's unique way of empowering individuals and developing community.
Alice Blumenfeld is a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, a Fulbright Scholar in Dance, and an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence recipient in Choreography (FY20). She is the founder and director of ABREPASO flamenco, a non-profit arts organization that aims to deepen appreciation for the full breadth of the flamenco form. She previously served as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Oberlin College and has given masterclasses, workshops, and guest-lectures at many universities across the U.S. As a performer, she toured with Flamenco Vivo for five seasons and has performed as an invited guest with many companies, including performing in Spain and Germany. www.aliceblumenfeld.com
