To our fellow
flamencos y flamencas…

It's with a heavy heart that I bring you news of the closing of Flamenco Arts Center's studio space. Our little community spot was the brainchild of Cynthia Rosario, who wanted to have a place where we could all learn and enjoy everything we could find about this enigmatic community art form called FLAMENCO. It had to be accessible, wide open, with a sturdy floor, and most importantly, someplace where we could make lots of noise, 24/7... and no one would tell us to be quiet!

Over the years we've had the privilege to host great flamenco artists from far and wide. They came to teach, perform, and share with us their love of flamenco music, dance, and history. I am truly grateful for all the "Brush With Greatness" moments
I've been able to be a part of. Flamenco Arts Center will live on, in a non-traditional, non-geographically-specific form, and will continue to curate and present the annual Chicago Flamenco Festival with the Instituto Cervantes. For now, our space will be virtual. But FAC will continue to be a positive force for Flamenco in Chicago—Ole!

"Si no hay cante, no hay flamenco."
