About the Company:
Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of America’s most prominent flamenco
companies, serving more than 40,000 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 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, African and Latin American cultures – gives this art form a unique power to build
bridges between people.
