Deidre Haley owner and director of AllStar Dance Academy located in Bosque Farms is bringing her old school Cabaret Inspired beginning Jazz and Tap classes to Maple Street Dance Space!

The Haley name has been around the Albuquerque studio and social dance community for many years. Deidre grew up in her family owned dance studio---the Mike Haley Dance Center, studying Ballet, Tap, and Jazz under Miss Lana Kroth, Miss Connie Espinosa, and Miss Jana Streigle---yes that was many moons ago. After many years of studio dance training and competitions, Deidre went on the study dance and education at the University of New Mexico under then director Bill Evans. During her studies at UNM, Deidre was also the manager and head teacher at the Mike Haley Dance Center West Side. Albuquerque Dance Academy was her next venture. As owner and director of this dance Academy, the next three years were spent organizing schedules, hiring teachers, organizing public performances and recitals and of course teaching dance. Event organization was a little less taxing on the body so Deidre became the assistant to her uncle Mike Haley for the directorship of the UCWDC World Dance Championships in San Antonio, TX; Nashvillle, TN, and Amsterdam. She was also Volunteer Coordinator and Assistant to the director for the New Mexico Country Western Dance Fiesta.

After her daughter Maddy was born, Deidre went back to her passion by opening the AllStar Dance Academy in Bosque Farms NM. The past 10 years have been so wonderful for both Miss Deidre and the rural community. Having gone through two hip replacements and a long recovery in the past 3 years, Deidre has continued to serve the community bringing quality dance instruction and a fun family orientated studio. At present, Miss Deidre still teaches pre-Ballet, Tap levels I-III, Cabaret Jazz, Adult Ballet. She has four great teachers on staff to bring Lyrical, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, Int. Ballet, and Pointe classes to Valencia County.

Miss Deidre is so very excited to bring her fun and unique classes to Maple Street Dance Space!
