Great flamenco school right here in little 'ol Albuquerque. VERY Talented & Passionate group of people. I love that all ages can attend. My daughter has been there since she was 3, she's now 9. I like to dance while she's dancing merely for excercise. I appreciate that all ages, ethnic groups, and sizes :) feel welcome. They are a little unorganized but all of the good attributes are FAR more worth focusing on. Its a good family local owned business. I can appreciate that. I would encourage anyone to go there for sure.

I am saddened to report that the NIF does not deserve more than 2 stars. I once loved the program and I’ve spent countless hours listening to ticki-ticki-ta. My daughter has also danced here since she was 3, she is now 9. But things got worse not better. The staff is super unorganized it IS a BIG problem! They even misspelled my daughter’s name on the Christmas recital tee-shirts and schedule last year. (it being her 5th Christmas performance I wouldve thought NIF would spell her name correctly.) The director Jacqueline Garcia is a nightmare, she blamed me for the misspelling! I didn’t misspell my child’s name. The institute never sent email or set out a paper to request for verification spelling like she said, when she openly raised her voice to blame and chastise me at the performance in front of my family. Later, I asked other parents and they were not asked to verify spelling either. This summer 2018 trying to get my child registered for kids camp was so frustrating we decided not to attend for the first time in years. So here is the skinny on NIF, Most of the original staff and friendly faces are gone, the program has lost its warmth, the feeling of familia is gone. Furthermore the longer we attend classes here at NIF, the more the blatant Nepotism is evident, certain students and families receive special treatment and free stuff/programs for their kids, others-have to do volunteer work to get help and others simply pay out the nose, because believe me Flamenco dancing is not a cheap! The man who is the youngest son of Encinias family and runs the check-in desk, is super rude to most of the parents, we are treated like we owe him something, it’s ridiculous. I feel they owe us respect, it us our dollars which create their livelihood. The prices of classes and performances keep getting higher and higher but everything stays the same where does our money go? In fact the dancers have used the same costumes since the fire in 2014, yet we pay $50 or more costume fee per performer, each performance, and then we must also buy the tickets to watch the show. Plus we are constantly asked to donate, sell, donate, sell, donate sell, which I have always done, but where does all the money go? The facility we’ve been in the past few years is horrible, the bathroom didn’t even work 1/2 the time! We are happy they’re finally moving the kids to a safe area, it only took 5 years. I do think Ms Eva and her teachers are exceptional people and the world is better for them. Unfortunately, the director Jacqueline Garcia is running the place into the ground, her personality is defensive and aggressive and all the changes and continual price hikes are driving local Albuquerque families away. The only ones left will be the wealthy and the privileged the rest of us are being driven out. The NIF was many times a better organization while run under the last director April Goetz, we miss you April.
