FREE Introductory Dance Classes

Join us with your young dancer and discover the world of dance together!

Ballet Austin invites all prospective students as young as 18 months and their parents for a FREE introductory dance class!

This is the perfect opportunity to find out more about our dance class programs. Classes are age-appropriate and offer an exciting, sensory-rich movement experience designed to gently introduce young children to dance and music, while instilling the physical and emotional confidence to explore and create. 

During your visit, you will be taken on a brief tour of the studios, experience thirty minutes of a fun-filled class, and a warm and friendly Q&A session to answer any questions you may have.  

Offered at NO COST to prospective students and their parents. 

Come join the fun!

Classes for children ages 18 months to 10 years are available at two convenient locations: the Ballet Austin studios in downtown Austin and at our partner campus, the Jewish Community Center (the "J"), in Northwest Austin. Free introductory classes are offered at both locations once a month.
