“As a dancer in Arizona, as I tried to be as puro as possible, I’ve been told that my style is too aggressive and masculine; that women should not do so much footwork and instead focus on the fluid movements of the hands and arms, always concentrating on creating a picturesque, beautiful flamenco image. I am not interested in being that dancer.” Angelina Ramirez, 2018 Artist Research & Development Grant Recipient
