New Session Starts This Week (Aug 23 & 25)

Summer Dance Camp is over and our Fall schedule starts next week. We are offering a variety of classes including Viennese Waltz just in time for the University of Texas’s Great Waltz. We will have two sessions of Viennese Waltz (10 weeks) so be sure to sign up. Other offerings for the first Fall session are

  • Tuesdays with Laura — Cha Cha 2 and Tango 1
  • Tuesdays with Mark — Viennese Waltz 1 and Rumba 3
  • Thursdays with Jessica — Waltz 1 and West Coast Swing 2
  • Thursdays with Mark — Tango 5 and Foxtrot 4

Classes start at 7:30 and are still 55 minutes long, have great professional instructors and are priced as only a non-profit organization can do. We are pleased to have Jessica Chaney join our staff as Matt Stewart heads off to Tennessee.

Our classes are open to all, do not require pre-registration nor a partner. We do not accept credit/debit cards — cash or checks only.

Ballroom Dancing in Austin

We are a non-profit club dedicated to bringing ballroom dancing to the Austin area at a reasonable price.

We specialize in ballroom, from the smooth waltz and foxtrot to the sassy cha cha, rumba and bolero. All of the ballroom dances are taught in our group classes and practiced at our social dances.

We hope you will check us out. We are a friendly social club with something for everyone. Partners are not required; we love to mix it up.

Group Classes

Group classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the beautiful Hancock Recreation Center/Golf Course. Highly qualified instructors provide a friendly teaching environment for all levels of dancers.

We have beginning classes every session plus an intermediate night for the more experienced dancer. Take your dancing to a higher level and shine on the dance floor.

See our Classes page for additional information.
