Tania Tandias studied flamenco, Spanish classical, and escuela bolera with two of the top flamenco dancers in the United States today, Pablo Rodarte and Eva Enciñias-Sandoval, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Ms. Tandias has performed with Maria Benitez's Nuevo Flamenco in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the Albuquerque-based Alma Flamenca, which performed in local venues, festivals, schools, and in the internationally acclaimed Festival Flamenco Internacional.
She has also performed in faculty concerts at the University of New Mexico and in the opera Carmen. In Madison, Wisconsin, she has been introducing, through performing and teaching, the beauty and passion of flamenco and Spanish dance to fellow Wisconsinites. In addition to numerous festivals, private parties, and lecture-demonstrations, Ms. Tandias has recently choreographed and danced in pieces for The Madison Opera, Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society, The Milwaukee Ballet, and The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, whose program Vivo Flamenco was shown on Wisconsin Public Television.
