New Mexico Dance Fiesta 2019


We had a great time celebrating our 30th Anniversary of New Mexico Dance Fiesta!  Albuquerque provided us with beautiful weather and an abundance of local dance community support this year!  Ronnie DeBenedetta kicked off the celebration with a West Coast Swing workshop on Thursday evening that had the main ballroom dance floor FULL.  At the conclusion of his workshop, we kicked off our Welcome Dance – Party Like It’s 1989 – and had some fantastic “period” costumes representing the year of our beginning!  Competitors from all over the United States joined us for some truly breathtaking Pro-Am, Line Dance, Teams and Couples competition all weekend long.  Our featured guests, Marc Davidson and Sylvie Raymond, treated us to some spectacular workshops and stunning-as-always performances during our Saturday Night Show with Masters and Superstars competition, which was preceded by our traditional New Mexico Dinner offered every year.  Sunday kept going all day and into the evening, with workshops into the afternoon and the “Farewell – See you next year” dance hosted by Albuquerque Dance Club that lasted well into the night!

We are already planning and getting ready for year 31 – join us at Crowne Plaza Albuquerque September 24th – 27th, 2020!
