Support DanceSport

Your generous support of NMSU DanceSport Company helps pay for team members to compete on a regional and national level, and to bring top-level professional dance instructors to Las Cruces for workshops. The university benefits from DanceSport’’s national exposure, which draws students and teaching talent to NMSU. Students benefit with increased chances of achieving professional dance careers, becoming internationally certified teachers, or becoming business owners with their own studios.
