The Property History

Built in 1930, the building was originally The Church of the Nazarene. It was most recently known as The Raramuri Center, a place hosting arts and crafts and rituals of the native peoples of the Americas.

The property was purchased in 2001 for its new role as a center for aerial dance & arts education.

On January 19th, 2003 we began a project of demolition and renovation of the 1930's Church building and grounds. While a majority of the exterior work was completed in the summer of 2003, we remain in a position of 'fine tuning' which includes interior lighting and sound system work, and a working out the bug-a-boos that have come up in trying to blend the old structure with the new structure.

Both Enterprise Builders and New Mexcico Metal Systems have been cooperating in the 'fine tuning'. Our special thanks to Mr. Rad Connelly for his hard work in this task and for overseeing all of the hard work done by Enterprise Builders.
