New digs!

The Austin Community College dance department has moved!  Come check out our new home within the former Highland Mall, which has been repurposed for higher education. ACC Dance Department’s new dance studio is open for business! We are in building 4000, Room 2205, at the Highland Campus.

And we’ve still got some big moving plans up our sleeve! ACC is still busy transforming this mall into a state-of-the art center for innovative learning, training excellence, and community engagement. Once the “Phase II” construction project is complete, ACC dance students will jeté into brand new state-of-the-art fine and performing arts facilities, to include a spacious dance studio theater, a rehearsal studio, blackbox theater, music performance hall, and much, much more. Follow the progress of the Highland Campus buildout here.

MOVE with us!

About our dance program.

Austin Community College offers an Associate Degree in Dance. The program gives students an opportunity to complete the first two years of study towards a BA or a BFA, explore a career in dance, take classes for their Creative Arts elective, and become more educated patrons of the arts.

The dance department offers students an opportunity to investigate the dance field and supports them in finding their own niche within the field. Based in contemporary/modern dance and recognizing each individual’s unique life experience and cultural background, the program encourages students to express themselves through the creation and performance of dance works. Opportunities are also available to serve as a “company member” while working with professional choreographers and instructors in the performance classes.

Experience in the dance field is also available through Service Learning opportunities. Dance production students can receive college credit for interning with professional dance companies. They get first–hand experience producing shows, working on marketing and publicity teams and administering the business side of a non-profit arts organization.

For folks looking for enrichment, all ACC dance classes are open to the community through the continuing education department. Community dance courses allow students who are not on a degree path to enjoy dance with the same college professors who teach courses in the degree plan. And community courses are affordable, with well-below-market course fees!
