NATIONAL HISPANIC CULTURAL CENTER

They have tons of events during the year.   If you are looking for something fun to do either during the week or weekend, make sure you check their schedule.


 

NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF FLAMENCO

Whether you want to learn flamenco, enjoy watching this beautiful dance, or love listening to the magical  flamenco music, this is the place for you!   The NIF  offers classes  for all ages and experience levels and they  hosts performances by world famous flamenco artists throughout the year.    Did you know that  the University of New Mexico is the only school in the United States  that offers a major in Flamenco?

This is a great venue to listen to great music in a non-smoking environment -who wants smoky-smelling hair?-  They present a wide variety of music, all kinds of jazz; folk, blues & roots music; experimental music; classical music; international music; kid’s programs; poetry & spoken word; theater and performance art; puppets; and visual arts exhibits.   This is a member-supported, non-profit arts organization, so come out have a good time and support the arts!

 


 

LIVE PERFORMANCES AT VARIOUS SMALL THEATERS IN ALBUQUERQUE

When it comes to live theater, I enjoy the Small venues as much, if not more, than the big ones.  Albuquerque has various small quaint theaters with quality actors and whenever possible you will see me out supporting our local actors and small venues.  See the scheduled performances going on now.

 


 

GLOBALQUERQUE

I can’t say enough about this wonderful event held in Albuquerque every year.  I went to the first one and I can’t stop telling people about it.  You must go to this event featuring artists from all over the world.  Check out Globalquerque performance schedule for this year.  Put in on your September calendar!

 


 

NM JAZZ WORKSHOP

They have different events throughout the year playing diverse  music including Jazz, Blues, and Afro-Cuban Salsa. My favorite is Salsa Under the Stars.  Check out NM Jazz Workshop Schedule for the year.
