Flamenco Performances and Classes
Based in Phoenix, AZ, Julia Chacon Flamenco Theatre was founded in 2008 as Inspiración Flamenca. The company mission is to share the art of flamenco; to inspire, educate and bridge cultures. We believe flamenco has the power to build connection, foster curiosity, and bolster pride in diverse heritage.
We offer performances, classes, and arts-education programs in the Phoenix Valley and beyond.
Flamenco is a Spanish art form with roots in the diverse cultures that impacted southern Spain, including Gypsy, Spanish, Moorish, Catholic and Judaic cultures. This unique mix of seemingly disparate cultures enables flamenco to resonate across cultural boundaries. Constantly shifting, this traditional art continues to grow through modern interpretations and international cultures.
Good flamenco comes from relationships built on trust, respect and confidence. The most successful collaborations come from clear communication between artists. In flamenco, one must listen, be present, be flexible and constantly be growing, improving and evolving. Our community of artists, students and audience members create this positive circle.
Julia Chacon Flamenco Theater is the only flamenco repertory company in Arizona.
