About the artist:
Leilah Broukhim was born in New York of Sephardic Iranian parents, although she has been based in Spain since 2000. Leilah graduated from Columbia University with a B.A. in Film Studies. She began her flamenco dance formation with respected New York-based professors who gave her the necessary foundation to follow her growth in Spain. In Madrid, she continued her studies at the renowned dance academy Amor de Dios under great masters of flamenco, including Maria Magdalena, Manuel Reyes, Rafaela Carrasco and José Maya, while completing her knowledge of flamenco in Seville with the Farrucos.
Her professional career took off with the two most important flamenco dance companies of the USA: Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and María Benítez Teatro Flamenco. Leilah has performed in the principal tablaos of Spain, including Casa Patas, El Corral de la Morería, El Corral de la Pacheca and more!
