About Us

TorcuArt was established in 2020 to promote classical Flamenco and Spanish Guitar and associated disciplines, including dance, song, poetry and visual arts, in the United States by organizing performances, conferences, workshops and other activities that bring together artists, students and the general public.

 

Our goal is to expand the audience and foster an interconnected community of lovers of these art forms while also preserving and disseminating the legacy of Maestro Torcuato Zamora.

Membership

We want to foster an interconnected community of Flamenco lovers…

TorcuArt is a non-profit organization, accorded tax-exempt status under US Law, section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. As such the conduct of our Board of Directors and our Members needs to be free of organizational conflict of interest; as the organization is structured, we cannot individually benefit financially by participating.

Many of our members have an interest in politics and public policy but we are not an advocacy organization; we ask that all members refrain from support or opposition to any specific political party or policy when they are participating in activities sponsored by TorcuArt.

Our members are a mix of secular and religious people. As a diverse and inclusive organization however, we ask that TorcuArt Members be respectful of all beliefs and understanding of the fact that our organization does not favor a particular religious tradition.
