FLAMENCO! Santa Barbara
formerly known as
A COMPÁS (“on the flamenco beat”)
A Cultural Organization Mastering the Performing Arts of Spain
A COMPÁS, (pronounced “ah-kom-PAS”) is a non-profit organization created for the purpose of encouraging and supporting young people in Santa Barbara County to learn and master the traditional dance forms of Spain.
It focuses on scholarships for young dancers who are unable to meet the cost of classes. About 25-40 % of students are in need of financial assistance. Our goal is to offer every child in the community the opportunity to follow his or her dream, while instilling love of learning, self-discipline, self-esteem, respect for others and expression through the art of performing.
Because Santa Barbara is rich in its cultural legacy of music, dance and the art of Spain, I feel a special and personal responsibility to the present and future generations of young performers in our community.
We appreciate and depend upon our donors, foundations and grants whose ongoing support serves to sustain A COMPÁS and its programs.
A COMPÁS is offering you an opportunity to help! We ask that you would consider becoming a partner and support our performers with a donation for these much-needed scholarships.
