Demonstration Performance 
Grades 6+

Called “The Keeper of Flamenco” by Dance Magazine, Flamenco Vivo celebrates the passion and power of flamenco. Artistic Director Carlota Santana channels the exuberant energy of tablaos, Spain’s intimate flamenco venues. Relishing the highly improvisational nature of flamenco, the new work Tablao Flamenco highlights the dynamic interplay of the dancers and musicians whose symbiotic creativity gives flamenco life.

Co-founded by Santana and Roberto Lorca in 1983, Flamenco Vivo advocates for flamenco’s recognition as a living art form and a vital part of Hispanic heritage. Noting flamenco’s roots in Arab, Jewish, Roma, Spanish, African and Latin American cultures, Santana and Lorca believe flamenco can serve as a unifying force across generations and cultures.
