Alice Blumenfeld

Alice Blumenfeld is a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, a YoungArts Silver Award winner, a Fulbright recipient in Dance, and an Individual Excellence Awardee in Choreography from the Ohio Arts Council (FY 20). She fell in love with flamenco at age 12, and since then it has been the driving force in her life, founding the non-profit music and dance company ABREPASO Flamenco in 2016 and previously on dance faculty at Oberlin College and Cuyahoga Community College. Previously, she toured nationally with Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana for five seasons and performed as a soloist in their New York-based company for several years. She has performed as a guest artist with many of the preeminent flamenco companies in the U.S., including with Grammy Award winner Hernán Romero, Nélida Tirado, Forever Flamenco, EntreFlamenco, Jácome Flamenco, the American Bolero Dance Co., among others. Blumenfeld has also performed internationally in Germany and Spain. Spending countless hours woodshedding, she has developed her own style in flamenco, which can only be done when one deeply understands the form and its culture. Contemporary dance teacher and choreographer Laurie DeVito’s sequential movement and spirals has greatly influenced Blumenfeld’s aesthetic.
