General Information - Our Studio - Testimonials
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 the end of 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 3,300sq 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 location at 9600 Escarpment Blvd (near Starbucks).
Each studio room has professional-grade, fully-sprung Marley floors (which eases the pressure and impact on joints), wall-to-wall mirrors, water fountains, ballet barres and full sound systems.
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 retail store, Bright Lights Dancewear, which is in the lobby of our studio.
Currently, parents can walk their dancers into the building to greet their teachers and classmates! Parents (and siblings) drop-off their dancers and do not stay and wait in the studio lobby while classes are happening. When picking up your dancer, we have parents meet just outside the front doors and keep the dancers safely inside the lobby until we see their guardian!
NOTE: we are working on a close-circuit TV system for parents to observe their child's progress during class!
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.
Please visit our Photo Gallery and we look forward to seeing you at the studio!
