The Cristina Heeren Foundation of Flamenco Art is a private, non-profit entity, created in 1993 in Seville by Cristina Heeren, Hispanist and American patron. Its aims are the promotion, the teaching and the conservation of flamenco both in Andalusia and Spain, as well as internationally. Since 1996, the prestigious International School of Flamenco has trained more than 6,000 youths from around the world in Singing, Dance and Guitar, many of whom have benefitted from the scholarship program, especially new Andalusian talents. Current flamenco figures who have passed through its classrooms include Argentina, Rocío Márquez, El Choro, Manuel Lombo and Luisa Palicio. It has been recognised with the Flamenco in the Classroom Prize from the Andalusian Government, the Order of Alfonso X from the Ministry of Culture, the National Teaching Prize from the Chair of Flamencology in Jerez and the distinction Flamenco Thursdays from the Cajasol Foundation, amongst other honours. With the celebration of the 20th Anniversary, the 2017 opening of the new site in Triana and the reactivation of the Flamenco Talent competitions supported by benefactors such as Acciona and Helvetia, the Cristina Heeren Foundation enters a new stage.
