The Mission of Arts Flamenco

The New York Center for Flamenco Performing Arts/ArtsFlamenco works to:

  • preserve the traditions of flamenco, while also evolving flamenco as an art form;
  • be a centralized resource that promotes flamenco music, dance and culture;
  • foster an intelligent appreciation for the flamenco art form through education and performance;
  • provide performance opportunities for flamenco artists while also making flamenco accessible and affordable to all audiences.

Arts Flamenco accomplishes its mission through:
