In January 2015, the National Institute of Flamenco celebrated the grand opening of our new home at 1620 Central Avenue SE. The two-story brick building provides 3,800 square feet for three flamenco dance studios, administrative offices, retail space, and options for in-house flamenco tablao performances. The Directors and leadership of the organization enthusiastically support this next step forward for the National Institute of Flamenco as the first of many milestones to come in the rebuilding of the organization’s infrastructure after the devastating fire in 2013. The new location will provide a cost-effective and secure mid-term solution, allowing the organization to continue the rigorous process of due diligence on a permanent facility.
