Julia Chacon Flamenco Theater, Inspiración Flamenca

Flamenco Performances and Classes

Based in Phoenix, AZ, Julia Chacon’s Arizona 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. 

Arizona Flamenco

Flamenco has been taught in the Phoenix Valley since the late 1940’s when Eduardo Fernandez taught in Central Phoenix. His star student, Lydia Torea, went on to study in Spain and tour the world as the parter of José Greco. She returned and became a fountain of knowledge and culture for the Phoenix Valley, training hundreds of dancers and performing regularly.

About Flamenco

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.

Flamenco Community

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 improving. Our community of artists, students and audience members create this positive circle.

Inspiración Flamenca is the only flamenco repertory company in Arizona.
