Flamenco dancer Julie Galle Baggenstoss is known across the country for her work on stage and in educational projects involving Spanish artists. Close to her home of Atlanta, she has performed and choreographed Flamenco with the Atlanta Opera, Georgia State University’s School of Music, The Latin American Association, Coves Darden P.R.E., and at universities and museums from the Southeast to the Midwest. She teaches Flamenco in the Dance and Movement Studies Program at Emory University. Julie is a former instructor of the Atlanta Ballet, and is a teaching artist for organizations such as Woodruff Arts Center, the Rialto Center for the Arts, the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese, the Foreign Language Association of Georgia, and Georgia Public Libraries. Julie’s dance style reflects continuing education and years of classes with Spanish dance teachers, including Ángelita Vargas, Ángel Atienza, Juan del Gastor, Manuela Reyes, Pilar Ortega, Manuel Liñán, and Juan Paredes. Her work is guided beyond dance steps by Flamenco artists La Meira and Antonio Granjero. Julie has a M.A. in Spanish, and lectures on Flamenco’s avant-garde, the African influence of Flamenco, and the Latin American presence in the Spanish art form. Julie is the executive director of A Través, 501c3 and owns a production company called Berdolé, both of which produce Flamenco works involving Spanish Flamenco artists in residence in the United States of America. Julie is the co-founder of jaleolé, a grass-roots marketing organization that shaped Atlanta’s Flamenco landscape for a decade.
Julie works as an independent artist, and is able to perform as a solo act or with a group that she pulls together from a pool of highly qualified colleagues, including guitarists, singers, percussionists, and other dancers. She performs with live Flamenco bands as a dancer, and she also performs dance to recorded playback. Julie is qualified to lecture on the African, Latin American, and Gypsy roots of Flamenco, as well as the art form's crossings with visual art and literature. She can provide a professional sound system and wooden dance floor when requested by the client. Sets range from 10 - 50 minutes, depending on client needs and artist availability.
