Country Gold Line Dance
Carlsbad, New Mexico
New Mexico
In 2005, the New Mexico Line Dance instructors decided to form an organization in order to standardize the dances in New Mexico so that when we get together at a jamboree, the dancers will know the same dances and be able to dance together.

Instructors submitted 25 of their favorite dances.  These were totaled and the first list of 40 dances was published.

Each year thereafter, the instructors have voted to add 8 new dances to the list and delete 8 of the current dances.  This is done to keep the list of dances as current as possible.



A New Mexico Line Dance Jamboree has been held each year, and these 40 dances have been danced at each jamboree.



                               New Mexico Line Dance Jamborees have been held at the following locations:
