Dance Across Austin: May 2022

Dance Across Austin is MINDPOP's citywide initiative to bring more dance into more spaces across Austin. This large-scale project has us working both in-school and during out of school time. For out of school time, we are partnering with the City of Austin to increase the number of dance classes taking place at City cultural and recreation centers. This May we have a series of amazing classes going on all across the city.

Three of our participating sites are hosting classes that are open to the public for school-aged children. Check out these offerings and join us in dance! (And stay tuned for more offerings in the fall.)
