As a means to fulfilling our mission “to foster a thriving local dance community,” as well as to raise necessary funds, NMSU DanceSport Company strives to bring dance performance to the local community whenever possible.
Look Who’s Dancing
Look Who’s Dancing is the premier ballroom dancing event of the year, modeled on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, for the Las Cruces area. DanceSport Company members are partnered with local community “celebrities” and they have 12 weeks to prepare for the big competition event, held every year in the Pan American Center.
Each celebrity partnership performs two dances in the competition. Company members are responsible for creating the dance choreography, instructing their partners on how to execute the steps, and performing with them in the show.
The purpose of the event is to promote social dancing in the community as a healthy and enjoyable activity for all ages and all skill levels, and to benefit the DanceSport Company. Money raised from Look Who’s Dancing helps our students represent NMSU at national competitions, produce shows regionally and share dance locally.
