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.
