ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The National Institute of Flamenco has broken ground on a new site five years after a fire destroyed its former home in downtown Albuquerque.

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports the institute broke ground on Wednesday at a new home in Albuquerque’s Sawmill District.

Their new location will include two buildings - one for the National Institute of Flamenco and another for a charter school that will be heavily focused on visual arts.
