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.
