NIF AND TANM ON THE MOVE TO THE SAWMILL NEIGHBORHOOD:

on December 18th of 2013, NIF had a terrible fire that destroyed our home of many years on Gold Avenue.

Every year on this day, we are reminded of the resiliency of the organization and our community in the face of much uncertainty, and we are reminded of the hopefulness of a new chapter. We 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 embark on the beginning phase of our dream to build a permanent home in the Sawmill neighborhood. This project will have several phases; Tierra Adentro’s opening this January is phase one, and the Institute’s opening is phase TWO! Thank you all for being a part of our community and our family through the challenges and blessings. Óle!
