  • Joyce Willett School of Dance
    Joyce Willett School of Dance nurtures young dancers in an emotionally, intellectually, and socially safe space. Instructors encourage students to embrace their creative instincts, exploring music through the movement of their body while developing fine and gross motor skills in a supportive environment. Teachers integrate multiple dance styles into classes, from the precise gestures of ballet to the less-structured movements of hip-hop and jazz. The school's theater-arts preschool program cultivates young performers through theater games and role-play that emphasize socialization. Students learn to not only read picture books but to act out their stories and ultimately leverage their adorable dimples into a two-picture deal plus a cut of merchandising.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studio
    Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

  • Belly Dance with Bahaia
    Belly Dance with Bahaia's eponymous owner draws upon her 15 years of torso-contorting experience to teach women the feminine hip-shakes and sinuous motions that compose this ancient art form. Internationally recognized for the belly-dancing skills showcased in her DVDs, Bahaia leads women of all sizes through this low-impact workout that trims waistlines without corset implantation. Each one-hour beginner’s or intermediate/advanced class breaks down torso-undulating technique step by step, allowing students to master the motions while focusing on proper posture and form. Dancers then weave together a string of graceful motions to create a fun, core-strengthening workout that flaunts femininity like an "It's a girl!" bassinet decal. Weekly classes take place either at Arthur Murray Dance Studio or Flamencura Music and Dance Studio. During sessions, students may wear comfortable clothes, keep feet bare or clad in dance slippers, and borrow accouterments such as veils, finger cymbals, and entranced bellybuttons.

  • Agni The Dance Company Austin
    Agni is the Sanskrit word for fire, the element of energy, passion, roiling motion, and marshmallow singing. It is this energy that Agni's experienced instructors bring to all their courses, including intro to Bollywood dance. Bollywood refers to the Hindi-language film industry centered in Mumbai, and with it the iconic songs and dances that enliven the globally popular films. Each class introduces students to the fundamental elements of Bollywood dance, which was modeled on classic Indian dance styles but has grown and changed over the years into its own art form. By the end of your four classes, you're not likely to get cast opposite Shahrukh Khan in a prominent film, but you will have a grasp of the basic moves needed to progress in Bollywood dance. In addition, the exuberant dancing style provides a full-body workout in a non-competitive, joyous environment.

  • Dance International
    Although Stewart Yaros has performed with numerous elite companies, including the Boston Ballet and the Basel Ballet in Switzerland, his true passion is teaching dance. Teaching allowed the University of Massachusetts and Martha Mahr School of Ballet alumnus to combine his finely honed dance expertise and his zeal for communicating with others via the "common language" of dance in particular and the arts in general. That theme of unity and togetherness dates back to the early days of Dance International, circa 1991, when the now bustling center for dance tutoring consisted of three students, their devoted teacher, and an old player piano that played "Chopsticks." Today, the organization has swelled into a hub for upbeat, accessible instruction from professional-level teachers and is well-known for organizing the Austin Ballroom Festival. Part of the guiding vision for Dance International is a focus on community service, as well as promoting the arts by introducing music and visual forms into the dance milieu. True to its multidisciplinary ambitions, the Dance International empire recently achieved 501(c)3 national nonprofit status and will soon add art and music classes.
