We are the ladies of Sweet Jubilee, a dance troupe in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We specialize in vintage jazz dance styles from the 1920s – 1950s. We draw inspiration from chorus girl performances from the same eras. Dancing to the music of hot jazz and big band, our goal is to keep the history of this American art form alive and bring it to audiences in Albuquerque and New Mexico.
We are comprised of dancers from various backgrounds, some of us from the local swing dance community. We do this for fun while we are students, teachers, or professionals in other fields. While most of us lead busy lives outside of our troupe, we still manage to dedicate numerous hours a month to training and learning new routines. We call Rhythm Dance Company our home base and where we practice weekly.
Sweet Jubilee is available for hire to perform at events or functions. We have even been known to craft new routines for a specific event. Let us know what you need and we can try to accommodate if your event has a theme. Please feel free to contact us with questions or for a quote.
Do you love to dance and feel inspired by the 1920s-1950s? We are always looking for more ladies interested in joining Sweet Jubilee. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested. CONTACT INFORMATION
While our team members often fluctuate from semester to semester, the core members who have been on the team for a year or more are:
We have fallen in love with hunting for beautiful vintage clothes and accessories in Albuquerque. Some of us recently began our hunt for vintage frocks because of Sweet Jubilee. Others have been collecting and searching for vintage gems for years. But now our closets are getting a little too full and we want to share the vintage treasures with everyone!
So in an effort to continuously raise money for Sweet Jubilee, share our love of all things vintage, and keep up our hobby of discovering great vintage pieces that need a new home, we present our Etsy shop! All profits will go back directly to Sweet Jubilee for new costumes and other costs that arise when running a dance troupe! So shop to your vintage heart’s content and know you’re supporting us at the same time!
