About Us

The Albuquerque Latin Dance Festival celebrates the rich Latino culture in New Mexico through the arts by inviting artistic and musical talents both locally and from around the world! This is a time for us to celebrate both, the Latino experiences from outside of New Mexico, but also celebrate New Mexico's Latino and Hispanic story with those who visit.


Every year, we celebrate our roots with a long weekend of dance classes, parties and music, film, and lecture. No matter who you are, or where you come from, we invite you to come learn about our music, our food, our dance and our stories. We want you to immerse yourself and share our heritage, and see how deeply the arts is rooted in the Latino story. Come share your own stories with us and let's celebrate our history!
