Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
We will build positive relationships with venues and presenters in greater Minnesota, creating opportunities for more dance events in the future. We will survey our venue partners to determine whether they would be interested in having Zorongo Flamenco and/or other similar arts organizations return to their venues. 2: We will expand our range of communities visited. We will show that we have presented successful performances at venues in communities in which we have not performed.
Our venue partners were all very enthusiastic about the tour appearances. All shows were well-attended, except for Fond du Lac College, proving that greater Minnesota audiences are excited to see styles of performance, such as flamenco, to which they may have had little previous exposure. The opportunities for Zorongo Flamenco and other arts organizations to tour in the future have thus been expanded. We surveyed all presenters, and they were all interested in having us perform again in the future. All presenters were interested in presenting other touring artists from Minnesota. 2: We successfully performed in all of our planned tour venues: University of Minnesota-Morris, Carleton College in Northfield, Central Lakes College in Brainerd, Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Myles Reif Center in Grand Rapids, and Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College in Cloquet. We had not appeared previously at four of these locations, and it had been some time since we had visited the others, with the exception of Central Lakes College, where we toured in 2011. All of the performances were successful and all were well-attended except for Fond du Lac. This gave many audiences their first taste of flamenco music and dance, and they were thrilled to see it.
