Greetings, New Mexico ballroom and Latin dancers!

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

Founded as a nonprofit organization in 2006, we are celebrating our second decade of bringing New Mexicans together for the pleasures of social dancing. At our monthly dances, our members and visitors range from college students to Super Seniors, and from beginners to dancesport competitors.

We are the local chapter of USA Dance, a national organization dedicated to ballroom dancing.

Our focus is on the dancing, but just about every dance also features something special:

Our dances include a 45 minute lesson, taught by local professional dance instructors and geared toward beginning and intermediate dancers.

Occasionally we also feature performances or demonstrations by professional dancers, our own amateur couples and competitors, formation teams and others. Performances typically start about midway through the party and are well worth seeing!

We also host occasional live music, fun contests, banquets and other special events.
