Salome is an Ecuadorian actor, dancer, activist, translator, and arts educator. She attended Pearson College UWC (Canada, 2010); obtained her bachelor's degree from Skidmore College in 2014 with honors in dance and theater; and attended the Shakespeare Programme at the BADA (UK) in 2012. Salome is a second-year M.A. candidate at NYU Gallatin, focusing her studies on international education, performance, and mythology.
Salome's works aim to combine her passion for the performing arts and social justice with the goal of helping her Latinx and many other international communities to heal from the pain and traumas created by uprootedness and immigration through applied dance and theater. She currently works at NYU Office of Global Services, where she provides guidance to many incoming international students and at the International High School in Queens as a theater teaching artist with the EarSay Youth Project.
When she's doing work, you can find Salome having fun either shooting dance films or creating performance pieces with her amazing international and women of color collaborators in their newly created FUN Collective (Fierce, Untamed Niñas). She has performed nationally with YCDA, LFX Dancers, Radical Evolution, EarSay Org, and FUN Collective in venues such as Nuyorican Poets Cafe, LaMama, Dixon Place, New York Theatre Workshop, The Elektra Theater and Joe's Pub at the Public Theater.
Internationally, Salome performed several years with Ballet Nacional Integrado del Ecuador in several venues and dance festivals in Ecuador, Venezuela, Cuba, and Argentina as a lead dancer and soloist.
