Maniya Barredo is Josephine Carmen Imutan Barredo, also known as Honey Barredo. She is a prima ballerina, a coach, and a teacher.

She was born in Manila on 19 November 1951. As a dancer and trainor, she was distinctly well-defined by various critics. She was noted on her music's visible manifestations by John Unterecker; a beautiful, a real find and has the makings of a great ballerina by Clive Barnes; a superb artist, who could favorably compare with the greatest, the rest of the world has to offer by National Artist Leonor Orosa-Goquingco; and the country's first prima ballerina assoluta by Felecitas Layag-Radaic. She danced and created roles in the ballets both in the Philippines and abroad including "The Legend of the Sarimanok", "Difficult Years", "Swan Lake", "Cinderella", "Ali Baba", "The Sleeping Beauty", and "Romeo and Juliet".
