Xianix Barrera is a Bessie award nominated flamenco dancer, teacher, choreographer and producer whose work aims to highlight bold and tenacious female artists and their unapologetically robust femininity.  Female empowerment, queer themes, sexual identity and social justice color her choreographic work and create the focal point for the company she founded in 2012; Xianix Barrera Flamenco Company. Continuously pushing boundaries within flamenco, while remaining true to its tradition, her most recent production,

"Mujeres", featured a rare all-female cast that solidified an ongoing creative collaboration with revered guitarist and composer Antonia Jiménez. The company embarked on its first tour in 2019 with performances in New York, Portland and Phoenix. Xianix also gives classes to adults, children and elders throughout New York City.
