New Mexico Dance and Music consists of two cooperative sister schools: The Las Cruces School of Dance and Music located in Las Cruces and the Academy of Ballet located in Alamogordo. Over the last fifteen years, we have achieved a wide-spread reputation for excellence in both instruction and performance with many of our students going on to study at top-quality performing arts schools and university programs.
