TuFlamenco, as a company, focuses on two main fields: education and performance. Our company was founded in 2018 by Inma Montero and Danielo Olivera after many years of experience working in Scotland for other companies.
The Flamenco Academy
The Academy is based in Edinburgh but we also provide classes in different Scottish cities, such as Dundee, Glasgow, Perth and Aberdeen amongst others. TuFlamenco’s passion, love and dedication for this art is contagious and it has grown very quickly and successfully and we love trying to make a difference to the lives of our young, and not that young flamenco lovers. We see them blossom and grow in confidence and ability, with many becoming ‘obsessed’ by these activities!
The Concerts & Productions
TuFlamenco, as a live performances and show production company has successfully delivered many shows,some of them premiered and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in previous awarded. Our artists have been taken part in this festival for more than a decade having been awarded with 5***** reviews in many opportunities. In fact, our experiences at the Fringe have played a key role in our decision to create TuFlamenco in 2018 and produce our own shows.
Artists & Productions
Although TuFlamenco is co-directed by Inma & Danielo themselves they are accompanied by an amazing group of well-known artists from all over the world who have been working with them on different projects and who will also take part in this project.
Our audiences love the variety of our shows and quality of this family of artists we have gathered thanks to the many artistic adventures we have had through the years.
The Purpose of this Fundraising
The idea behind this project is to offer a series of events and rewards that will help us gather funds that will be used to bring our activities, workshops, classes and live performances to individuals within the health care and educational settings based all around Scotland at no cost. We aim to reach as many hospitals, community centres, care homes and primary schools as possible targeting areas don't normally have access to these sort of activities.
This idea is born as a result of the experience in the outreach sector that we have accumulated since 2006 visiting many different organizations. We believe that art can improve the lives of our communities especially in light of the recent Covid-19 crisis.
We are privileged to have a virtual platform such as this online edition of the Fringe and we want to use this opportunity to share the artform with the Scottish community.
We would like to tour around Scotland during the next year bringing free activities to various areas creating a circuit of locations in the hopes of continuing this as a new tradition in the future.
How we will DO IT
The money raised will help to pay the fees and expenses of the group of artists & teachers involved in each part of the tour. The money raised will help to pay for petrol, expenses, food, wages of artists and obviously, some coffee along the road and in between places to keep the spirits up!
Once the campaign has finalized, we will make accesible to everyone on our website (www.tuflamenco.com) the detailed plan of action that we will set out to accomplish thanks to your donations. More information can be provided as well via email upon request. We will also update our website and social media after each of our visits sharing with you the result of the activities.
All funds pledged will help us in bringing this dream to live, a dream we hope will carry on a yearly basis allowing us to share our future Fringe productions with other areas of Scotland unable to enjoy the Festival otherwise.
The success of the project as well as the distance we will be able to cover relies entirely on your support. We will begin planning as soon as the fundraising finalises and we will begin delivering the project as soon as it is safe to do so following all government health and safety advise.
Remember you can keep up with our activities following our website www.tuflamenco.com where you will find all our info regarding our flamenco academy, the activities, the projects and you can find interesting information.
About this fundraising
To thank those who make a donation, we have put together a few very special rewards that we hope will show how much we appreciate your help to raise the funds so that we can deliver these special experiences all around this great nation which probably needs a little bit of extra care during these complicated times.
Thank you all for taking the time to read about our campaign and if you decided to believe with us in this project we promise you won't regret it.
Keep the good and magical moments coming to your life and don’t let anything stop you from the joy and being kind to one another.
Big loves to you all.
