Pamela Briz has over 25 years of professional performance experience. A versatile dancer, Pamela began her training in Toronto with Paula Moreno. As a company dancer for 15 years of Compañía Carmen Romero, she toured extensively in Canada and performed at the Certámen de Danza Española y Flamenco – an international flamenco competition - at the prestigious Teatro Albéniz in Madrid, Spain. Of Spanish heritage, Pamela regularly travels back to Spain to visit family and to take dance classes. She has studied at Amor de Dios in Madrid as well as in Seville. In Toronto, Pamela continues to develop as a dancer and has taken workshops with visiting flamenco artists such as Rocío Molina, Joaquín Grilo, Javier Latorre and Patricia Guerrero. Pamela’s interest in choreography has led to her collaboration with Triana Project and the co-founding of ViDAnza dance collective. With these groups, she appeared in Flamenco Sin Límites: B-Sides and the Body Percussion Festival at Harbourfront in 2017. In 2018, Pamela was nominated, along with company dancers Virginia Castro Durán and Alison Macdonald, for a Dora Mavor Moore Award in the dance category for Outstanding Performance - Ensemble. This is Pamela’s 11th season with EESDC and she can’t wait to once again share the stage with all the amazing and talented artists in this year’s production.
