Four years ago on December 18th, NIF had a terrible fire that destroyed our home of many years in Gold Ave.
Every year on this day we are reminded of the resiliency of the organization and our community in the face of so much uncertainty, and the hopefulness of a new chapter.
We just wrapped up a beautiful weekend, celebrating the 19th annual Recital Navideño, and are reminded constantly that our flamenco community is strong and deep.
It’s only fitting that we announce today that the National Institute of Flamenco and Tierra Adentro: The New Mexico School of Academics, Art and Artesanía will be embarking on a long dream this coming year to build a permanent home in the Sawmill neighborhood. This project will have several phases, with Tierra Adentro opening phase 1 this January, and the Institute opening phase 2 in the fall of 2018!
Thank you for all for being a part of our community and of our family, through the challenges and the blessings. Olé!
