Flamenco Dancers

Shall We Dance?

We do dance! In theatres, schools, auditoriums, studios, outdoors, and in our homes. And there are all kinds of us dancing. There are the young children, experiencing the joy that movement and music brings. There are young dancers learning the poise and power of a dance. There are adults who use dance to stay in shape. There are those who love social dancing wishing there were more places to boggie. And there are both the aspiring and professional dancers who realize the daily effort necessary to keep and refine their skills and artistry.

The Dance Society is the melting pot for all of us. We are a service organization. Our efforts are to coordinate, educate and promote dance on the NMSU campus and in Southern New Mexico. QUALITY is what we aim for in all our efforts.

As you can see, we have many benefits to offer, and our officers and board are busy working on more that might help you in the future – INNOVATIVE programs and ideas to bring more dance in our lives.

To reach the goals of our organization, we will need more than financial support. All members are required to contribute 3 hours each semester in dance service. By doing service projects we are eligible to submit requests to ASNMSU for special project funding.
