THE DANCE BARNS
Each week over 2,000 children ages three to 18 come to The Dance Barns in Santa Fe or The Hiland in Albuquerque to enrich their lives with high-quality dance and performance training with a focus on excellence. These two dynamic facilities have become nurturing and engaging second homes to our after-school students and their families – a place to come together to experience the arts with classes in creative movement, ballet, hip-hop, modern dance, jazz, tap, voice, and theater.
The Dance Barns and The Hiland programs give children the opportunity to participate in professionally produced onstage performances and are open to all children in the community with classes offered on a sliding fee scale. Whether looking for an introduction to creative movement, or advanced classes for those with their eyes set on a career in dance, The Dance Barns and The Hiland have a perfect class for you.
