Welcome to USA Dance North-Central New Mexico!
As part of the USA Dance National organization we share in the mission to improve the quality and the quantity of ballroom dancing. We promote social ballroom dancing by holding two dances a month in addition to hosting various special events. We also promote and support competitive ballroom dancing.
Our dances are held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month; sometimes having 5th Sunday dances too. The 1st Sunday dances usually include a lesson from 6:20pm to 7:00pm, and our 3rd Sunday dances often feature dance demonstrations by amateur, professional, and team dancers. These performances are typically around 7:30pm and are well worth seeing! The schedule may change to accommodate special events.
Our dances begin at 6:00pm with open dancing until the the lesson (6:20-7:00) or dance demonstration. Open dancing resumes and continues until 9:00pm.
Our regular dances are held at the Albuquerque Square Dance Center at 4915 Hawkins Street NE in Albuquerque. Take I-25 to the Ellison/San Antonio exit, west on Ellison a short distance, then right on Hawkins.
1st Sunday Dance Lesson 6:20 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. (Beginner/Intermediate Level)
3rd Sunday Dance Performances 7:30 p.m.
