This festival takes place every two years thanks to the collaboration of both public and private institutions — Mexican and international — by the initiative of Fundación Proart A.C. «A non-profit institution committed to mankind, working in behalf of training and professionalization of dance and art in general, building a cultural project for society’s development», as explained in their website.

The goal is to engage people and commit them to art through multiple options for appreciation and learning, always having Spanish dance in general and flamenco in particular as the starting point.
