Welcome to USA Dance North-Central New Mexico
Our chapter started like many, "in the beginning", which for us was October 2005 when the original steering committee for the chapter was formed by pioneer members: Ben Porter, Shawna Hollen, Ed Jonas-Morrison, Sally Semm, Caren Waters, Anna Watkins (Chapter Coordinator). Our first membership list from USA Dance National in September 2005 shows only 8 names. We were officially certified as USA Dance Chapter 5047 on February 28, 2006, our official birthday. We are celebrating our 10th year this year!
We have grown from the original 8 members and one dance per month to dances twice a month and over 145 members. We have dances on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month that average about 80 dancers. Our monthly dances include a 40 minute group lesson on the 1st Sunday and a usually a demonstration by local professionals, amateurs or dance groups on the 3rd Sunday. Our dances are held at the Albuquerque Square Dance Club, an excellent facility for ballroom dancing with a large wooden dance floor inside and plenty of parking outside. Click here for directions.
