Review for Keshet , Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first stumbled upon the Keshet Dance Company, it was still located in a small, somber building close to the heart of the downtown area. Going into my first ballet class there, I had no idea what to expect. My immediate reaction to the space was dubious, but I am pleased to say that Keshet proved me entirely wrong. I soon found that it was an incredibly welcoming and friendly environment, filled with people who love to dance. From my first experience, it became clear to me that Keshet was passionate about dance, and, moreover, passionate about bringing dance to the community. It has been over a year since I've visited that small little space downtown, and I am happy to say that Keshet finally has the space and the facilities that it deserves. The atmosphere is still the same; warm, welcoming, friendly, full of energy, and passionate. I am currently a part of their volunteer work study program, which allows me to trade hours working at Keshet for hours dancing at Keshet. As a part-time student, full-time server, this program is especially important to me, as it enables me to take dance classes when I otherwise would not be able to due to financial restrictions. It is apparent to me and to many others who dance here that Keshet really cares about the people who participate in its classes and programs. The Keshet Dance Company certainly does not bar people from dance due to their physical or financial limitations, and instead attempts to incorporate and include the greater community. Dance is for everyone. I know that and Keshet knows that, and I feel so grateful to have finally found a dance studio that I can call home. I look forward to many more years of dancing here!
