Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana announces the 2015 New York State Flamenco Certamen, featuring a live dance competition by 10 finalists on the evening of October 9, 2015 at the Bruno Walter Auditorium of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. The company has also confirmed dates for other major 2015-16 performances, including its 2016 New York home season, May 3-8, 2016 at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s BAM Fisher Building; free “Flamenco in the Boros” performances in neighborhoods across the city, December 9-16, 2015; and a National Tour of more than a dozen engagements in nine states coast-to-coast, November 5-19, 2015 and February 8-March 4, 2016.
Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of this country's longest-established flamenco companies, dedicated to promoting flamenco as a living, evolving art form. In keeping with that mission, the company last year launched the New York State Flamenco Certamen, a competition for pre-professional dancers living, working or studying in New York. Patterned after regional dance competitions that take place throughout Spain, the New York Certamen drew a standing-room-only crowd to the inaugural year’s final competition, held last October 10 at the Bruno Walter Auditorium on the Lincoln Center campus. For the second edition of the Certamen, Flamenco Vivo will return to Bruno Walter for an awards competition by ten finalists on the evening of Friday, October 9, 2015.
The New York State Flamenco Certamen is intended to showcase emerging talent, but it also serves to highlight flamenco’s cross-cultural appeal, as well as New York’s enduring attraction to artists from around the world. This year’s finalists include dancers born in Spain, Columbia, Mexico, Russia and the U.S., all of whom have come to New York to perfect their art. “We are thrilled to provide exposure to these dedicated dancers, who sacrifice so much to pursue their passion,” remarked Flamenco Vivo founder and Artistic Director Carlota Santana. “We’re equally proud to bring the vibrancy and diversity of New York’s flamenco community to Lincoln Center in this way.
