Argelia Arreola is a Bronx-based Mexican dancer, choreographer, and musician who is passionate about rhythm and everything related to African influences within artistic expressions. She graduated from Universidad Veracruzana, Mexico, with a Bachelor’s degree in contemporary dance. She formally trained in the traditional African dance of Guinea for 20 years. She seeks to make an artistic contribution to the field of contemporary dance by bringing to the fore the dynamic relationship between the music and the language of African (Guinean and Senegalese), Afro-Cuban, and Mexican folk dance. She is currently on the faculty at Gibney Dance and has developed her own AfroKorp style. Argelia has her own artistic project, AcustiKorp, where she involves all these movement languages. She is also a dancer and choreographer in Ballet Nepantla, dancer and musician in La Mezcla (a polyrhythmic San Francisco-based dance and music ensemble), and a member of the Afro-Mexican band Jarana Beat. She has performed at Lincoln Center, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in 2016 and 2022, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Lincoln Center Summer Stage, Battery Dance Festival in 2018 and 2019, BAM Dance Africa in 2017, Bryant Park Dance Party, Salvatore Capezio Theater at Peridance, Ailey Citigroup Theater, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Joe’s Pub Theater, Symphony Space Theater, Summer Stage Harlem Festival in 2015, and Queens Theatre in the Park. She has been awarded on many occasions with the fellowship of the Mexican National Program of Scenic Creators FONCA as a choreographer and dancer.
