Cincinnati Ballet is pleased to announce Compañía Irene Rodríguez will be performing during this season’s Bold Moves Festival, June 9-18, 2023 at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. With more than 20 years of experience, Irene Rodríguez has been a teacher, rehearsal teacher, and choreographer of Spanish Dance and Flamenco Style for prestigious dance institutions, including the National Ballet of Cuba. “I am focused on creating new trends in order to evolve the Flamenco dance by fusing it with everything that the stage vocabulary has to offer from the dramatic arts, to contemporary dance currents, to native rhythms,“ Rodríguez said. She has also been director of the Flamenco and Spanish Dance Program at the world-renowned School at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in the US and has taught many Master Classes internationally. Her work as a choreographer includes multiple titles performed by Kansas City Ballet, the Spanish Ballet of Cuba, the Next Generation Ballet, and the National Academy of Spanish Dance; among others.
