Organizer Xianix Barrera Flamenco Co.

Organizer of Fiesta Flamenca Student Showcase 2021

     Xianix Barrera, a Latinx native New Yorker, was exposed to music and dance at an early age with ballet, modern, jazz, and percussion. Xianix began her studies in flamenco in New York and deepened her training in Madrid and Sevilla under the guidance of distinguished masters including Concha Vargas, Carmen Ledesma, Andres Peña, Raquel Heredia, and La Lupi among others. Xianix performs internationally as a soloist and with various flamenco companies sharing the stage with artists such as Isabel Bayón, Raquel Heredia "La Repompilla", Rosario Toledo, Soledad Barrio, and Juan Ogalla. She has performed at such prominent venues as the Joyce Theater and Lincoln Center in New York, Tablao El Duende in Copenhagen, the Red Theater in Abu Dhabi, and Cafe Silverio in Sevilla.

In 2012 she founded Xianix Barrera Flamenco Company, which prides itself in producing traditional flamenco performances and workshops with international artists by highlighting bold and tenacious female artists and their unapologetically robust femininity within flamenco. Xianix is part of the Emerging Choreographer Series program at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center produced by Mare Nostrum Elements. In 2018 Xianix was awarded the SU-CASA community arts engagement grant, a program for senior citizens funded by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She was also an Artist in Residence with Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana in 2017 in “Flamenco Rosado: Gender & Sexual Identity in Flamenco” exploring the queerness, gender performativity, identity, and social justice within flamenco.. Xianix was also a recipient of a coveted scholarship to attend the Cultural Traditions Flamenco Program at the School of Jacob’s Pillow in 2008.

  In addition to being an accomplished performer, Xianix is a highly sought-after teacher giving master flamenco workshops for the Joyce Theater and New York City Center during its annual Flamenco Festival. She currently teaches flamenco dance to adults, children and seniors in New York City.
