Organization Information

Mission Statement

A Través is a non-profit organization (501c3) that connects Flamenco artists from Spain with local American communities in projects that have deep connections and lasting effects through performance and education. Through our work, children and adults in the U.S.A. spend time with singers, dancers, and musicians from southern Spain while learning about language, lifestyle, and themselves, through interactions with people who want to share their artistic heritage. Projects build bridges that will change the future of those who choose to cross them - in both directions.

Description

A Través is not a performing company or school, but a presenter of flamenco programming. We certainly have a vision of how we want to show flamenco in our market, but we do not promote a singular expression of the art form. Showcasing the depth and range of flamenco makes it all the more transformative for American audiences. With this in mind, A Través is the only 501c3 in Georgia that is dedicated 100% to flamenco arts, and we are the only company to work deeply with institutions to create flamenco projects that align with community arts standards, including long-term exit strategies. Our projects introduce new perspectives, encourage curiosity, and increase creativity.
