Sunday’s event picks: Come Dance at Ballet Austin, Austin Arts Block Party


No one has two left feet at this annual day of free dance classes, with everything from beginning ballet to zumba to hip hop available in 40-minute increments. Once there, you’ll also be able to spin the wheel to win fun dance-related prizes, such as more free classes or T-shirts, and register to win even bigger prizes. You can register for classes in advance, which will guarantee you a spot, but drop-ins are also welcome.

Also on Sunday, ten of Austin’s best and brightest arts organizations are inviting you to an unprecedented joint effort — the Austin Arts Block Party that will get you a first look at some of the upcoming shows, concerts, exhibits and events happening throughout the next year. You’ll see and hear pieces from the Austin Opera, Ballet Austin, Conspirare, Tapestry Dance Company and more. You can also take a backstage tour of the Long Center.
