Austin’s most popular dance studio for children’s dance classes since 2000!
Dance Discovery has been in Austin for 15 years and has been voted #1 place to learn dance in Austin for 10 years by Austin Family Magazine. We are home to the STORYTIME DANCE™ curriculum that is specially designed for young children. All of our children’s curricula (birth–teen) are based on current human-development research. All of our teachers are professionals with college degrees in dance, theatre, or education who LOVE working with children. Spring session enrollment includes costume and end of year on-stage recital in May.
This whole dance class is a story from beginning to end incorporating age appropriate skills in ballet, jazz, creative movement, and tap. The dance class begins with a ballet story and then students repeat the ballet skills once more in the same order to traditional music. The story engages them on their level allowing them to learn more skills because they are actively focused for a longer period of time. The class then moves onto jazz, creative movement, and ends with tap.
Below is a sample of what went out to families after the first couple weeks of classes this past session:
Dancing with Our Baby Alligators
Hello Dancing Families!
We are having a wonderful start to the new school year! We are thrilled to see our returning dancers and overjoyed to welcome new dancers. We always begin our Storytime Dance school year with our Baby Alligator story. It is the perfect story to establish the basic positions and steps of ballet. Through imagery in our story dancers learned first position and échappé. As the story progressed dancers locomoted through the space and danced an energetic jazz dance.
Dancers began standing with their feet together. The feet together formed the Mommy Alligator’s egg. The egg hatched open to reveal not one, but two baby alligators in one egg! We pretended our feet were the alligators, and with Sister Alligator on one side and Brother Alligator on the other side, we realized that their tails were stuck together! With their heels together and toes apart, the dancers discovered first position. First position is the basis for all positions and steps in ballet. Ask your dancers to show you their tails stuck together! The Baby Alligators used team work to figure out how to separate their tails. Eventually they jumped their tails their tails apart with an échappé, a ballet movement in which dancers jump from first position to feet apart.
With their tails separated, our alligators were free to play. Our Baby Alligators realized that Mommy Alligator was missing, and we went on a search to find her. Along the way we galloped with a horse, travelled on tip toe to a bear, and swam in a swamp. We found Mommy Alligator and celebrated with a jazz dance! Dancers gleefully practiced their knee bends and hip shakes with waving arms. As we stretched, we helped Mommy Alligator make a soup that only hungry baby alligators would love! We tap danced and practiced our heel taps and toe taps.
With our dancing bodies invigorated and our hearts full of love for our Alligator Family, we leave our swamp friends and embark on a new Storytime Dance adventure next week!

Foodie Kids celebrates over 25 years of teaching kiddos how to cook, providing innovative recipes, diverse ingredients, and professional culinary instructors.
Cooking and baking are lifelong skills that everyone should have. When kids cook for themselves or involved in the process in some capacity, they try a larger variety of foods and are more accepting of different ones they would typically reject.
Each week our kiddos will learn two new recipes using seasonal ingredients. They will learn basic knife skills, vocabulary, math/measurements, and build confidence and pride in a finished product. We also place an emphasis on cuisines from other cultures and countries and that cooking is not just to expand our palate and skills but a way to connect as humans with the one thing we all share – food.
