Culture Shock

Tippy Toes

Chamber music and classical dance get the elaborate marriage they deserve in an inaugural festival that kicks off this week at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW). The Ballet Pro Musica Festival's main performances will be held next week. This week, accomplished local dancers can take advantage of master dance classes beginning Tuesday, July 31, taught by Ballet Pro Musica's principal choreographer Peter Anastos and Colorado Ballet's artistic director Gil Boggs. For details, call 352-1281.

Spanish Market

In case you haven't heard, the 56th Annual Traditional Spanish Market is drawing bazillions of people to Santa Fe's plaza this weekend to listen to live music, watch live dance performances and eat delicious chow. The main draw, of course, is the handmade art by New Mexican artisans, including santos, colcha, tinwork, pottery, woodcarving and more. Admission is free and this hugely popular arts circus runs Saturday, July 28, through Sunday, July 29. For details, call (505) 982-2226 or go to Bring elbow pads.
