Carolina Lugo’s Brisas de Españas Flamenco Dance Company
Carolina Lugo’s Brisas de Españas Flamenco Dance Company is a nonprofit organization chartered to share the rich dance, music, and literature traditions of Spain with all communities, and to be a center which encourages new artistic creativity within the framework of the Iberian-Hispano experience. The Company represents a diversity of cultures from around the globe, appearing in a broad spectrum of creative mediums, including television, dinner theater, cabaret venues, opera, and concert formats. The company was founded in 1995 by award-winning international dancer, choreographer, and master teacher Carolina Lugo.
In 2007, the company received a grant from ACTA’s Living Cultures Grants Program to support a full-length concert production, El Camino de un Artista – The Pathway of an Artist, commemorating 40 years of Carolina Lugo’s exploration into the full spectrum of flamenco and Spanish dance. The concerts and educational outreach concerts for school-age children featured guest artists from Spain.
