Yolanda Heredia is a celebrated flamenco dancer from Seville with a gypsy descent, daughter of Flamenco singer Jesús Heredia, and wife to flamenco dancer Alejandro Granados. She started her solo dance career at the age of twelve dancing in the famous Sevilla tablao “Los Gallos”. She studied with Flamenco masters like Manolo Marin, Farruco, Mario Maya and Milagros Menjibar. She won the Premio Nacional de Córdoba and specialized in the use of Bata de Cola. She has performed in major flamenco festivals along side Camaron, the Farrucos, José Mercé, Aurora Vargas, Chano Lobato, Potito and Miguel Poveda amongst others. She has a long trajectory of teaching Flamenco dance in Spain and internationally (Japan, Argentina and Central America). She is also very recognized for her provocative picture in the official poster of the Bienal de Sevilla 15th edition, where her nude body was all painted in black and symbolized how flamenco women, when they dance or sing, expose their soul to the world, in all its nakedness.
