Guest ARTIST RESIDENCIES

The National Institute of Flamenco contracts and coordinates residencies with master guest artists in Flamenco and Spanish Dance each year. These residencies vary in length from 3-8 weeks, and serve multiple student populations. Guest Artist Residencies take place at the University of New Mexico’s Dance Program, Tierra Adentro: The New Mexico School of Academics, Art and Artesanía (TANM) and the National Institute of Flamenco’s Conservatory of Flamenco Arts.  

In the Fall of 2012, The University of New Mexico began its Visiting GUEST Professor Program. Since its inception, numerous master artists have come to choreograph and mentor students in the Dance Program. This provides a unique experience for dance students at UNM, as it is the only fully developed Flamenco studies program at a university world wide. The National Institute of Flamenco proudly assists in facilitating this artistic exchange.

The National Institute of Flamenco provides Guest Artist Residencies for The New Mexico School of Academics, Art and Artesanía (TANM).  Master Artists, including both musicians and dancers, teach, choreograph and mentor young student artists in at this public charter school, providing an underserved population with access to some of the greatest Flamenco and Spanish Dance artists in the world. 

Guests Artists in Residence teach and mentor a diverse group of students at the Conservatory of Flamenco Arts, particularly during its Summer Programming. Guest Artists in Residence also perform at Tablao Flamenco Albuquerque and El Farol, Santa Fe, and with Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company, allowing local audiences the chance to see Flamenco and Spanish Dance artists at the pinnacle of their art forms.
