ABREPASO flamenco is a high-caliber flamenco music and dance company and nonprofit organization based in Northeast Ohio. We aim to create new entry points into flamenco and new pathways within the form. Through our educational and performance programs, ABREPASO builds bridges across cultures and shares this unique Andalusian art form with communities in NE Ohio. 

Marija Temo is a classical/flamenco guitarist, flamenco vocalist, conductor, and former dancer.  She has come into her own, combining her flamenco and classical abilities in unique types of performance.  “Challenging the rules of traditional flamenco…She continues to break new ground…” Philadelphia Inquirer. A few highlights include: Vocal contestant on La Voz US, NBC TV; Composer/Arranger/Accompanist for the “Flamenco Nutcracker” production; Performer and judge at The Guitar Foundation of America International Guitar Festival and Competition; Performer with the Zac Brown Band, and has had two works for guitar and written for her by Loris Chobanian.

Alice Blumenfeld is known for a unique and “fierce presence (her movements seem to arise from several feet beneath the ground)” (Thinking Dance) and her “sharp and exhilarating” energy onstage (Philadelphia Inquirer). Blumenfeld is the founder and artistic director of ABREPASO flamenco. The company’s name means to break open space and their mission is to deepen appreciation for flamenco and create original choreographies, finding new entry points into and new pathways within the art form. Blumenfeld’s recognitions include: a Fulbright recipient in dance in Spain, a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, and a two-time Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award recipient in choreography (FY20 & 22).
