Encuentro Milonguero Albuquerque started out as Siempre Milonguero in 2010 when a group of dancers met to discuss creating an organization to encourage and advertise encuentros hosted nationwide. The Siempre organizers hosted Albuquerque’s first Encuentro in 2011. The group then split the organization in two, with Siempre Milonguero continuing to promote all encuentros in the U.S. via their website and monthly newsletter, and Encuentro Milonguero ABQ focused on hosting encuentros in Albuquerque. After 2011 we hosted encuentros in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2022.
Encuentro Milonguero ABQ is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization. The current Board Member/organizers are: Garth Bawden, Sarah Bradley, Tom Clark, Leslie Jones, and Karen Reck.
We wish to thank our recently retired member, Elaine Bawden, for her years of commitment to EMAbq.
