About Us

The Central Texas Belly Dance Association is devoted to the variety of dance art forms collectively called Belly Dance. We hold classes and sponsor workshops as well as perform throughout the central Texas area.  No prior experience, skill, or particular fitness level is required to join our classes or our association and while a willingness to perform is not required, those who chose to perform find ample opportunities and encouragement.

Our association is military and veteran friendly and we are proud to have veterans, including disabled veterans, among our membership.
