Teaching Taos to Dance
Taos Youth Ballet was started in 2005 by Amber Vasquez as a favor to a handful of parents in the community. The school contained 10 students and ran 3 classes that first year. Taos Youth Ballet is now one of the leading dance schools in Northern New Mexico with a special interest in exposing the community at large to dance, live music and educational opportunities. Ordinary kids, Extraordinary possibilities.

Camps, Workshops, Performances
Throughout the year Taos Youth Ballet prepares our dancers for performances and offers Summer Camps and Workshops for all ages. Taos Youth Ballet performances are always sold-out affairs so be forewarned if you plan to go. The lines are long and It might be a good idea to call ahead and reserve seats.
