…and relaxed, friendly learning environment!!!
We would like to welcome our latest affiliates — Arthur Murray Dance Studio and USA Georgetown! The dancers from these two organizations can now enjoy our Saturday night dances at the $5 affiliate price, and our dancers can attend their dances at membership rates. Spreading the love of ballroom dancing throughout the Austin community continues to be one of our goals. We hope our members take advantage of these dance opportunities, and we welcome Arthur Murray and USA Georgetown guests to our Saturday dances.
