Dance Xplosion was opened by lifetime dancer Amber Frishman in 2008. Dance Xplosion is a learning, training and performing facility for all forms of dance with an exciting Annual Recital held in the spring at the conclusion of each school year.
Year-round classes are offered with the "regular schedule" held from August through May. Summer classes, camps, intensives and workshops are held in June and July. Guest teachers from around the country hold special master classes throughout the year which are open to both current and future Dance Xplosion students.
Our facility consists of more than 6,100sq feet of action-packed space in the Escarpment Village Shopping Center located at the intersection of Escarpment Blvd and Slaughter Lane in southwest Austin. This includes 3 studios rooms in our original location at 9600 Escarpment Blvd (near Starbucks) and 2 studio rooms in our second location at 5800 Slaughter Lane (across the street, near HEB).
Both of our locations include a waiting area with ample seating and free wireless internet access, a separate bag area for students, 2 full ADA restrooms, water fountains and beautiful dance studios!
Each studio room has professional-grade, fully-sprung Marley floors (which eases the pressure and impact on joints), wall-to-wall mirrors and ballet barres, full sound systems, and viewing windows or close-circuit TV for parents to observe their child's progress.
We want our students to achieve their very best, so we also offer the very best in dance attire for children to adults! From shoes, leotards, tights and tutus to shorts, pants and shirts we have the essentials at our original location. And we have everything a dancer could dream of in our retail store Bright Lights Dancewear which shares space with our 2 additional studio rooms near HEB.
From the paint, insulation, and air-conditioning all the way to the wood used for the ballet barres, Dance Xplosion is environmentally “Green.” This is positive for our world, but it also means that you and your child are breathing in the cleanest, safest air possible while dancing with us.
