The Dance Eclectic is a Las Cruces-based, non-profit, community dance collective dedicated to creating performance and choreography opportunities for community members who might not otherwise get to perform and choreograph. Members’ dance backgrounds vary from dancers with 6 months of dance experience, or members with experience in cheer, to life-long dancers with college degrees in the art form.
The Dance Eclectic’s members create and perform original choreography, and work collaboratively to showcase their work in two professional quality shows each year—Fringe Dance Festival, which is our repertoire, and an original show centered on telling a narrative through dance—as well as a number of community events (view our upcoming events).
Established in 2016, The Dance Eclectic has expanded both in size and programming, but has stayed true to the original vision set forth at its founding, seeking to recruit dancers who might not otherwise have many opportunities to perform: teens and adults just starting out (through The Dance Eclectic Studio), full-time workers, and other dancers facing circumstances that might make it difficult for them to participate in more traditional dance companies. Also, those who are simply creative and want an outlet to dance and work collaboratively with others with similar passions.
