Each week over 2,000 children ages three to 18 come to The Dance Barns in Santa Fe or The Hiland Theater 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, modern dance, jazz, tap, hip-hop, voice, and theater.

Our programs give children the opportunity to participate in professionally produced onstage performances and are open to all children in the community with classes currently offered on a sliding scale. Whether looking for an introduction to creative movement, or advanced classes for those with their eyes set on a career in dance, we have a perfect class for you.

Watch for Spring 2022 Class Schedules, Ages 3-18, in March!
Adult Class Registration Ongoing
