Classical KDFC Neighborhood Arts Spotlight, showcasing the great work of the Bay Area’s lesser-known, but no less important, non-profit Arts Organizations!

The Bay Area’s Arts Community boasts hundreds of organizations: music, theater, dance, visual arts, digital arts, and many that are breaking new ground in ways that are hard to classify! Many of these groups are small with shoe-string budgets and limited resources, so their inspired and sometimes groundbreaking work often goes virtually unnoticed. Click here to apply!

This month, the Classical KDFC Neighborhood Arts Spotlight shines on:

Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco

Since 1966, Theatre Flamenco has produced richly imaginative shows in collaboration with local and international artists, offering classes with world famous flamenco artists to students of all ages and abilities, and maintaining strong ties to flamenco artists around the world. The Bay Area continues to be an important center for the art of flamenco outside of Spain, and Theatre Flamenco is committed to bringing that authentic experience from Spain to the San Francisco and the Bay Area.
