Dance from the Heart is a Houston, TX based 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization that uses multi-cultural dance education and performance to reveal the common ground in our communities.


We provide contributing dancers the opportunity to receive continuing education through Artist In Residence Programs, ongoing classes, and workshops designed to deliver focused, intense instruction over a short period of time.


We encourage community relations, public outreach and awareness by donating time and talent to local events whose underlying mission shares our goals.
