About

Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of America’s most prominent, culturally-specific dance companies, serving more than 45,000 people nationwide each year through far-reaching programs that entertain, educate and empower. Our mission is to promote flamenco as a living art form and a vital part of Hispanic heritage; produce and perform high quality dance works; and provide arts education programs that catalyze connections among young people, while nurturing the next generations of Spanish dance artists and educators. We believe that the universal spirit of flamenco – with diverse influences from Arab, Jewish, Gypsy, Spanish, and Latin American cultures – gives this art form a unique power to build bridges between people.
