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; provide arts education programs that catalyze connections among young people; and nurture 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.
Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana’s performances uphold the purity and traditions of flamenco and classic Spanish dance while pushing the boundaries of the art form in new directions. The company commissions dramatic works with original choreography and live music, and performs cutting edge dance in New York and tours throughout the United States.
