As a professional dancer, Ms. Granados has performed internationally, including in three of Madrid's most legendary tablaos flamencos: Los Canasteros, Zambra and Las Brujas, as well as touring her signature productions in New York City, the Mid-Atlantic States and Europe to critical acclaim. She choreographs for and appears regularly with her own company, as well as with orchestras and opera companies. The New York Times has called Ms. Granados professional productions 'exuberant' and 'stylish' and her solo work 'stunning -- a tour de force'.

Additionally, she has been an artist-in-residence at LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and the Performing Arts, on the faculty of Broadway Dance Center, a freelance teacher at Fazils Times Circle Rehearsal Studios, and a guest teacher and lecturer for the Dance Departments of New York University and Barnard College.
