Want to enjoy your New Year’s Eve meal someplace special? Here are some hot holiday happenings at Heritage Hotels & Resorts in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos, including special meals on New Year’s Eve, as well as a holiday flamenco showcase by New Mexico native La Emi.

LA EMI FLAMENCO WINTER SHOWCASE, DECEMBER 27 – 31

The Lodge at Santa Fe is pleased to announce the return of La Emi with a special winter/holiday showcase at The Benitez Cabaret, with special guest appearances by Vicente Griego and Gabriel Lautaro Osuna, Javier Saume Mazzei, Olivia Rojas, Carlos Menchaca and Daniel Peregrino.

The showcase will take place nightly from December 27 – 30 at 7:30 p.m., with doors at 6:45 p.m. On New Year’s Eve, there will be two celebration shows at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. complete with a champagne toast to ring in the new year.

A prominent performer, teacher, and organizer in the state, La Emi, a New Mexico native, began studying the art of flamenco with the Maria Benitez Institute for Spanish Arts (ISA) at the age of four. In 2014, La Emi founded her own dance company, EmiArteFlamenco, and in 2017, she founded both EmiArteFlamenco Academy, a school for students of all ages, and Flamenco Youth de Santa Fe, a children’s company that performs for communities all around New Mexico.

In addition to performing in venues across the country, La Emi has traveled to Spain to study intensively with notable dancers like Gala Vivancos, Carmela Greco and La Popi and performed in major venues and events in Madrid, Granada, and Seville. La Emi has received recognition for her talent and work through the years, including Santa Fe Mayor’s Melissa Engestrom Youth Artist Award for Excellence in the Arts in 2012 and being selected as one of twelve young and emerging artists in Pasatiempo. In the summer of 2018, she launched her professional career with Heritage Hotels producing performances at the Benitez Cabaret at The Lodge at Santa Fe.
