Sara Moncada

Dance

Artist Bio

Sara Moncada began her studies in dance and theatrical performance at the age of six including classical ballet and modern dance. In 2001, she discovered her passion for the art of Flamenco and began studying in the U.S. with La Monica and La Tania, among others. Her studies took her to Spain where she studied with such artists as Farruquito, La Farruca, Pastora Galvan, Andres Marin and Rafaela Carrasco. Since 2003 she has performed as a company member and soloist with Monica’s Pasion Flamenca, and has been invited to dance with Carola Zertuche’s Theater Flamenco and Yaelisa’s Caminos Flamencos. In 2006 she joined La Tania Baile Flamenco and has worked as a company member and soloist for such events as Una Noche Flamenco, Punta y Tacon and Mision Flamenca.

As her dance carrier evolved, her involvement in her Native American culture and heritage merged with her performance and professional dance training, naturally bringing her Native American dancing to the theater stage. She began presenting Native American culture, arts, and dance with Eddie Madril in 2008 and joined Sewam American Indian Dance as an artist and program director in 2012, presenting across the country. In 2014 she traveled to France with Sewam Dance to share Native American culture and dance at the Le Festival du Monde, exchanging arts and culture with representatives of over 14 countries from around the world.

For over 20 years she has performed and shared dance, culture and arts to communities everywhere.  Sara is the Program Director for Sewam American Indian Dance, Project Diretor for La Tania Baile Flamenco and she is Co-Founder of Wise Women Circles an organization dedicated to the sharing of Women’s wisdom and traditions through workshops and film.
