We host dances for everyone

Whether you love to glide across the ballroom floor to a lyrical waltz, or shake your hips to a groovy salsa, you’ll find a home at USA Dance of North Central New Mexico.

We host social ballroom and Latin dances that bring New Mexicans together. We welcome all dancers, from beginners to competitors, from students to Super Seniors, and from tangueros to Two-Steppers.

We host dances at Albuquerque studios on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month. The 1st Sunday dance is in the evening and the 3rd Sunday dance in the afternoon. Our modest admission fees — $5 for USA Dance members and $10 for others — usually include a lesson at no extra cost.

View our calendar to see our dance schedule, and read our news page for updates. Or drop us a line with your questions.

Founded in 2006, we are the local chapter of USA Dance, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ballroom dancing.

See you on the dance floor!
