From San Juan, Puerto Rico, Andrea Muñiz has always loved to move. She started her movement training at Lena’s Escuela de Gimnasia Rítmica. After many years of rigorous practice, Muñiz transferred her focus to ballet and contemporary dance. At Andanza Compañía y Escuela de Danza Contemporánea she grew into a technical yet passionate dancer thanks to the guidance of her teachers María Teresa Robles, Lourdes Ortega, and Eloy Ortiz. She had the opportunity to be a part of El Taller de Andanza, where she continued to expand her artistry by performing with the youth company as a soloist and part of an ensemble. Muñiz was driven to study dance at the collegiate level. She obtained a BFA in Contemporary Dance with an emphasis in choreography and improvisation from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. While at the conservatory, Muñiz performed works by Ron K. Brown, Tommie Waheed Evans, Roderick George, Uri Sands, Kate Weare, and others. She also began to develop her voice as a choreographer, mostly working in collaboration and in interdisciplinary settings. Her work lives on the edges of the physical, the technological, and the imagined. She has performed with Benkadi Drum and Dance, The Robin Aren Company, and Boston Dance Theater as a guest artist. Muñiz hopes to continue to create art that lives on the edges of the physical, the technological, and the imagined. She began an apprenticeship with Danza Orgánica at the end of 2019. Muñiz is committed to creating movement and to work in collaborative environments.
