The Las Cruces Chamber Ballet was founded in 1983 by Michele Self in hopes of promoting classical ballet and various dance forms. We strive to provide serious dance students with opportunities to develop their talents and have professional performance experience. It has become the longest continuously running professional ballet company in New Mexico.
