Professional Dancers

We encourage potential contract dancers to audition during our regular Sunday company class. Before you arrange a trip out to New Mexico, please note that NMBC is a small non-profit with a limited budget.  Our dancers are independent contractors paid per performance.  It is far from a living wage.  Most of our dancers are in college or grad school, have full time jobs or teach in addition to performing with us.  We do provide free unlimited classes and a small amount toward shoes in addition to performance fees.  If you are interested in auditioning for a contract position, please send us your resume and any videos or photos.


Albuquerque Dance Collaborative

Dancers ages 10 to 19 are welcome to join us for a specialized placement class in August. Team members will participate in community performances, local competitions and travel for a National Finals in Anaheim, CA during the summer of 2019. Join us to become a part of our award-winning team.

Class Placement/Auditions will be held during Jazz Technique and Contemporary on Thursday, August 23rd from 5pm to 730pm! A brief parent meeting will be held following class to cover season information!
