A big part of the Flamenco tradition was transmitted from generation to generation. Nowadays an even bigger part of it is the result of unending hours of study. In our TABLAO we put both together, sharing our knowledge with each other, as well as helping newcomers to initiate in this art.
6. Institutional support + Crowdfunding
A third of the costs for the construction and the annual running expenses of the dancefloor has been given by "Regionalkasse des Bezirksamtes Tempelhof-Schöneberg". The remaining part was collected from over 50 donations in a crowdfunding campaign.
This project is possible thanks to the work and the generosity of many many people.
Thanks to all of them!
