Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana

Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of America’s most prominent flamenco companies.

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 new generations of Spanish dance artists and educators. We believe that the universal spirit of flamenco – with diverse influences from Arab, Jewish, Gitano,

Spanish, African and Latin American cultures – gives this art form a unique power to build bridges between people.
Flamenco Vivo Studios are available for rent to flamenco artists as well as other dancers, theater and music groups for both classes and rehearsals. For more information or to Book a rental please visit:

We are thrilled to share that we are a finalist for the 2024 National Dance Project award! Flamenco Vivo has commissioned Patricia Guerrero to create QUINTO ELEMENTO (Fifth Element), a new full-length production exploring the fifth element of the earth: ether, that which we do not see yet is ever-present. Hailed as a "master of tradition who dares to deconstruct the art form," Guerrero draws on her deep knowledge of flamenco but ventures beyond its aesthetic bounds. In this work, she embraces chaos and fragmentation to deconstruct flamenco's expressive movement language.

Quinto Elemento will premiere in 2025 - stay tuned for more details!

On behalf of the National Dance Project (NDP) Advisor Cohort, we are delighted to share the 2024 NDP Production Grant Finalists.

Beloved dancer and teacher Mariano Parra, a core figure in NYC's flamenco and Spanish dance community for decades, has passed away and left behind a tremendous legacy. Read our special edition of La Voz Flamenca for fond memories from those whose lives he touched:

“Born to an Andalusian father and a Russian mother, Mariano was raised outside of Pittsburgh among immigrant factory and steel mill workers. After seeing an announcement in the local paper, his father, a steelworker, piled the family into the car and drove to Pittsburg to see José Greco. That nig...

“It is important to imbue the choreography with feelings and the personality that distinguishes each one of us.”

Iván Vargas’ explosive energy and ability to convey the deep-rooted quejío, or cry, of the persecuted Roma people in dance has led him to perform and teach from the historic Sacromonte caves of Granada, Spain, to stages around the world. Vargas, a high-profile protagonist of pure flamenco, has a...

🚨Don’t miss special guest Elena Andujar performing with Flamenco Vivo in Tablao Flamenco (le) poisson rouge, March 26 & 27: https://flamenco-vivo.org/event/tablao-flamencomarch-26-27/

💃Elena Andujar was born in Seville, and brought up in an atmosphere in which flamenco was a way of life. She first studied and performed as a flamenco dancer, collaborating with Antonio Canales. However, she soon gained recognition as a flamenco singer after Joaquín Cortés invited her to perform in his shows ‘Cibayi’ and ‘Pasión Gitana’. She has performed with her group in flamenco clubs like La Trocha (Seville), Café de Chinitas (Madrid), Casa Patas (Madrid), Tablao de Carmen (Barcelona), Zambra (Alicante) and Suristán (Madrid). She has starred with several groups in different cities in the United States and Europe, occasionally blending singing with dancing.

💃Flamenco Music: History, Forms, Culture by Peter Manuel

Flamenco Music: History, Forms, Culture by Peter Manuel is the first book of its kind in English––a holistic portrait of the music’s history, styles, and cultural impact! Drawing from over 40 years of research, Manuel surveys the form's history from its predecessors to contemporary times, investigates flamenco's musical style/repertoire/techniques, and situates the art form in broader socio-musical contexts including gender dynamics, the internet, tourism, the status of Gitanos, globalization, purism versus innovation, and more.
