The Flame Foundation's Mission

The mission of The Flame Foundation is to educate and promote knowledge, skill, and appreciation of the performing and visual arts to children and adults in Dallas TX.  Our primary focus is in Flamenco dance, music, and its history. 

"Flame brings the art of the ages to the families of today" 

The Flame Foundation's History

In 2009, The Flame Foundation was founded by flamenco dancer and theater actress Delilah Buitrón and culinary chef/musician Troy Gardner. Inspired by a vision to bring flamenco to a wider audience, The Dallas Flamenco Festival was launched in 2009. The festival featured high quality flamenco performances and workshops lead by professional visiting guest artists. Since 2009, The Dallas Flamenco Festival has received international acclaim with interest from many professional flamencos from Spain and around the world, providing performance and training opportunities for flamenco oficionados in Dallas. 

With the support of Ochre House Theater, the Office of Cultural Affairs, and our generous patrons, The Dallas Flamenco Festival has grown exponentially. In addition to the flamenco workshops and classes, the festival now features children and adult student performances lead by professional flamencos, and a theatrical flamenco collaboration with Ochre House Theater. 

The Flame Foundation's Community Achievements, Needs, and Goals

Since Flame's inception of its major and longest running project, The Dallas Flamenco Festival, five very successful dance-theater collaborations have been produced with Ochre House Theater, beginning in 2012.  In 2014, one of their collaborations, PERRO Y SANGRE, went on tour to New York City and performed at LATEA Theater.  

The Flame Foundation reached a dream community educational goal by launching two free after school FLAMENKITOS programs at Sanger Elementary (DISD) and a FLAMENKITOS program at the Estudio Flamenco Conservatory of Dallas.  Recently, more of Flame's Flamenkitos programs have been included as part of the Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs artistic programming for 2017-2020 season.

The Flame Foundation's Cultural Equity Statement/ Policy

The Flame Foundation strives to present and design flamenco arts performances and outreach for multi-lingual, multiracial audiences ranging in age, social status, gender, sexual orientation, and citizenship status throughout Dallas communities.

We will continue to offer accommodations for audience members with disabilities. We seek artists, staff, board members, patrons, presenters, and venues from an array of zip codes and from a variety of backgrounds.  We cultivate an equitable, creative working environment in which everyone is expected and held accountable to engage respectful, non-discriminatory language/ behavior during all platforms of communication and interaction. We endeavor to bring our flamenco education and presentations to residents and visitors who represent the abundantly diverse city of Dallas.
