EntreFlamenco is a Flamenco dance company that officially claimed Santa Fe as their home a couple years ago with their new space near the plaza (El Flamenco), but they've been performing seasonally in Santa Fe since 2011. I've been happy to support them from day one. My friends and world class flamenco dancers Antonio Granjero and Stephanie Ramirez direct the company and present shows year-round. They both performed with Maria Benitez when she was touring the world and maintaining a summer season at The Lodge. For years, Artotems Co. (form er company)was happy to support them with video, photography and donations, but recently, I joined the board board of directors for their non-profit 'Spanish Danzart Society', deepening our support.
I collaborated with EntreFlamenco to help them design a program book for their 2019-2020 season. We kept the flow of the pages very similar to their programs from previous seasons and focused on making sure the layout of each page was aesthetically pleasing, while keeping all important information clear and readable. We were inspired by a photo of Stephanie, where she is striking a strong pose in a red dress. We used this photo as the cover and made the theme of the entire program to match. We played with design elements like black and white photos with color overlays so that text could be read more easily on top.
We are getting ready to set up e-blast emails and a periodic newsletter to be sent out to better reach their constituency. In the newsletters we might include recent performance photos, and mention their upcoming guest performers. EntreFlamenco also hosts workshops and gives free dance classes for local youth, so the eblasts could be a useful tool to get that information out to more people.
Looking forward to many more years of supporting great artists through creative work with EntreFlamenco.
