Who we are:
¡FLAMENCO! Santa Barbara accomplishes the following each year:
- Funds live flamenco musicians during Fiesta and throughout the year to allow performers and spectators to experience Flamenco in its truest form: accompanied by live Spanish guitar (toque), song (cante) and hand-clapping (palmas).
- Provides partial tuition scholarships to talented, young Santa Barbara County dancers in need of financial assistance.
- Subsidizes the cost for dancers to partake in workshops lead by master Flamenco artists, often from Spain.
- Sponsors the dance company, ¡FLAMENCO! Santa Barbara, which performs year-round for corporate events, private gatherings, senior homes, hospitals and schools.
- Provides young people with an outlet for creativity, expression and physical activity, and instills a sense of community, culture, history, respect, poise and confidence.
We are supported by the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation and many private donors and foundations who see the value in keeping aspiring young dancers and musicians focused on their passion.
With your tax-deductible donation, we offer a multitude of naming and sponsorship opportunities and will gratefully recognize you in our event program ($100+) and throughout Fiesta.
