Amber Vasquez

Director/Owner, Ballet and Modern Teacher

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. thousands of dollars are donated to the community every year through outreach programs and youth dance education in the hopes of inspiring budding young artists to dedicate themselves to their art form. Taos Youth Ballet is built on the foundation that dance can improve the quality of life for every Taos resident.
