This foundation, created in the year 2000, is located in the heart of Madrid, in the same building as the Casa Patas ‘tablao’ flamenco restaurant, one of the biggest venues in the world of flamenco and a meeting place for fans and performers of this art form.
The centre organises many different activities, including flamenco classes for the different disciplines, as well as seminars, conferences, and master classes. As a school, this non-profit organisation offers its students comprehensive training so they can master the art of flamenco and understand the wealth and variety that make flamenco a unique form of Spanish cultural heritage.
The Foundation also promotes workshops for national and foreign students, companies, fans, and tourists interested in learning about this art. It also puts on exhibitions of paintings and photographs, gatherings and talks about bullfighting, wine tasting sessions, and record and book launches. Furthermore, it can be hired out as a rehearsal space by flamenco companies and professionals.
