"Dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals." - Charles Baudelaire

The Balboa Park Club


Balboa Park Dancers meet twice a week in the historic Balboa Park Club building located at 2150 Pan American Rd W. in beautiful Balboa Park.


The Balboa Park Club building was first constructed for the park’s 1915 exposition to house the state of New Mexico’s exhibits. It was later remodeled and enlarged for the 1935 exposition. It was during this period that sculptor Frederick Schweigardt and painter Belle Baraceneau created their striking fountain and mural which adorn the building’s grand foyer. The main Ballroom features approximately 13,000 sq. ft. of unobstructed wood dance floor.

How long can dancers continue performing? While some dancers continue to perform into their 50s or longer - such as Peggy Baker, Trisha Brown and Alicia Markova - most dancers stop performing by their mid-30s because of the physical demands on their bodies. Many dancers continue to work in the field as choreographers, dance teachers, coaches or artistic directors. Others move into administrative positions, becoming managing directors and presenters for example. Some former dancers go back to school to train in a second career. Many have gone on to become successful in fields such as medicine, commercial art, computer engineering and education.
