Flamenco dancer

Julie Galle Baggenstoss is a Flamenco dancer working as a performer, teaching artist, and traditional instructor of Flamenco arts. Growing awareness about Flamenco – its origin and evolution, its many and varied interpretations, and the art form’s place in American culture – is part of the work taking place in Julie’s projects.  Flamenco is not a purely Gypsy art form.  Nor is it purely Spanish.  With influences from both the East and the West, Flamenco holds many truths and lessons for people across the U.S.A. who find their own personal expressions in this art form.
