Dance Waterloo is a non profit organization based in Austin whose mission is to cultivate, create, and perform interdisciplinary methods of dance for the community through public space, education, and collaboration. To do so we offer a number of classes and programs that make dance more approachable to our community.
Our site specific dance classes called Dance in Public Spaces, take place at public art installations throughout Austin, giving participants the chance to explore and create dance in a new and inspiring setting, as well as allowing the community to view, free and publicly, the particpants and the class. DIPS classes merge Dance Waterloo’s passions for dance and community in an innovative and unique way.
We also offer Storybook Dance Making classes that combine dance, art, and storytelling in a way that is fun and inviting for families and children. These dance education classes allow children to experiment with movement, creating and acting out stories with their bodies, all while discovering and learning with their parents cohesively. Our goal for these classes is to foster social and emotional growth in children through dance and creative expression.
The third program Dance Waterloo offers is What The Fit?!. Each of our professionally trained instructors use principles of yoga, Pilates, and/or Barre fitness to help participants increase their physical fitness – build strength, stamina, and flexibility – all while listening to some great jams! This class is designed for people of all ages and abilities.
Our newest program, Modern in Mueller, is a modern dance class that takes place in scenic Mueller Park, overlooking the lake. Geared toward professional dancers, we strive to give dancers tools and techniques for navigating the unique challenges of site-specific dance. Just like Dance in Public Spaces, this outdoor class is free for the public to view.
Dance Waterloo is an inventive and community based organization whose goal is to provide fun, affordable, and approachable dance classes to people of all ages and to reinforce our passion and belief for the need for dance in Austin.
