The Department of Theatre and Dance is proud to share the news that Professor Emeritus Eva Encinias-Sandoval has been granted this year’s Distinguished Dance Teacher award for her outstanding contributions to dance education at the University of New Mexico, the National Institute of Flamenco, and the many and varied places Eva teaches Flamenco. Professor Encinias-Sandoval began teaching Flamenco at UNM forty years ago and developed the only Flamenco concentration in a university setting in the world, changing the face of dance programs in this country. She is the founder and co-director of the National Institute for Flamenco, the founder, and co-director of the award-winning and internationally recognized Festival Flamenco de Alburquerque and continues to be an influential teacher and pedagogue in the city, state, nation, and on a global scale. Albuquerque and New Mexico would not be the same without her. Thank you, Eva, for all you do, all you share, all you are. Congratulations!
