FESTIVAL BALLET ALBUQUERQUE PRESENTS
¬°DANZA NEUEVO MEXICO!
REGIONAL DANCE AMERICA/SOUTHWEST
2019 FESTIVAL
March 28-30, 2019

Welcome to New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment!

New Mexico's unique flag has a red sun with rays stretching out from it. These rays stretch out in four directions, with four rays shining in each direction. This is an ancient sun symbol of a Native American people called the Zia.
The Zia believed that the giver of all good gave them gifts in groups of four:
Four directions - north, east, south, and west;
Four seasons - spring, summer, fall, and winter;
Day - sunrise, noon, evening, and night;
Life itself - childhood, youth, middle years and old age.
All of these are bound by a circle of life and love, without a beginning or end.

On behalf of the Festival Ballet Albuquerque Board of Directors, Company Dancers, Volunteers, and Staff, we welcome you. We are honored to host our incredible Adjudicator, Faculty, Musicians, Directors, Dancers, Parents, and Friends for this exciting three-day Festival of dance. Thank you for being here to share our passion and love of remarkable dance arts!
