Stars of American Ballet

by Susan Orth

There is always something of cultural interest happening in Santa Fe!  This week we receive a special treat of an elite group of principal dancers from New York Ballet and American Ballet who perform as the “Stars of American Ballet.”

Stars of American Ballet is the passion project and creation of New York City Ballet principal dancer Daniel Ulbricht. The all-star group performs around the world and the U.S. during season

breaks to bring quality ballet and dance education and outreach to cities and far-flung communities.

This is their seventh year in Santa Fe (one of their favorite places to perform) and this year the company will also travel to Mongolia!  A mission of “Stars” is to bring dance education programs, consisting of master classes, pre-performance lectures, and community outreach projects, to build better awareness and overall experience with the art form and offers free tickets for underprivileged children.

And as always, if you are in Santa Fe, please feel free to contact us, we would love to go to work for you!”





Santa Fe Indian Market

by Susan Orth

Each August, the historic city of Santa Fe becomes the Santa Fe Indian Market, enveloping the town's central Plaza and surrounding streets. In addition to the Market, there are hundreds of gallery openings, classical and contemporary Native art shows, Native film, music and dance performances, book signings, two cutting-edge couture fashion shows that take place during the two weeks preceding the actual Market. (Click here to view the schedule and access the site.)

Indian art collectors and artists from around the world make the pilgrimage to Santa Fe -- whether they intend to buy or not. The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) sponsors the event, which is estimated to bring more than 80,000 people and over $100 million in revenues to the state and region.  Market artists represent more than 200 tribes from across the United States and Canada. Artists retain 100% of the proceeds of the sales of their artwork.  Many participants claim to make one-third to one-half of their yearly income at Indian Market.

Founded in 1922, this year celebrates Santa Fe Indian Market’s 96th year as the world’s largest and most prestigious Indian art market. The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA), the 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that produces Santa Fe Indian Market, has drafted and maintains standards of authenticity to ensure that the artworks sold at Indian Market are original and of the highest quality.

Santa Fe Indian Market is all about creating a platform and exposure for Native artists,” said Dallin Maybee, SWAIA chief operating officer. “Our art forms are intrinsically tied to our cultural identity and we are fortunate to be working with and supporting so many talented artists, it’s truly a dream.”
