Are you ready to get moving with in-person classes? Great! We've got news for ya!

Are you learning with us from a distance, or would you prefer to continue to study online? Got ya covered!

We're thrilled to announce a studio-wide system update that will streamline payments, simplify class packs (no more managing separate expiration dates on packs for classes of different duration), allow you to reserve in-person spots in our hybrid classes (and see how many spots remain for upcoming classes). We've made the switch from the old MindBody, and instructions for accessing the new system are available in the Dauntless Online Adventures Group.

All existing class credits will be transferred to the new system, so if you've got class packs in your account, we'll be in touch to make sure they're ready and waiting for you when you're ready to log in.

See the attached images for new class pack info and to peep our Hybrid offerings! Hybrid classes are (shown in yellow) are limited in size and can be reserved starting 5/7 and begin 5/10. Masks are required for all in-person learning, and all members of our staff are fully vaccinated.

The only downside to having an insanely talented performer teaching your favorite burlesque class is that striking that perfect balance between instruction, bubble baths, and performance schedules can get pretty challenging for our intrepid star.

Thursday night shows are picking back up for our lovely Abby Cadabra , so we're putting her class on hold while we work out accomodations for that performance schedule 🖤

We'll keep ya in the loop/ tub on class timing and format updates, so keep your bath bombs peeled.

New Daytime Class Announcement!!!

Body “Mech”-anics with Ariel Celeste- Mon - 9:30AM, Wed/Fri -10:30AM (All times in CT). Begins Feb. 1

Our bodies are wonderful machines, but at times various parts could use a little extra grease. This short “prehab” practice uses foundational exercises of physical therapy in combination with functional mobility to build strong joints. Each class will focus on a particular body part for our purposes, a mini-bot which is part of the mega-mech (that’s you)).

Minibots will receive mobility and resistance programming to increase range of motion, and to prevent and rehab common injuries. When they assemble, your mech will be strong enough to put Defender of the Universe on your resume. This class is perfect for anyone looking to improve their mech’s processing speed, joint mechanics and body awareness, and for any and all who may be called upon to defeat giant lizards in defense of the planet.

All humans of all skill levels are welcome, and modifications will be provided.

-Optional Equipment: exercise mat, blocks, looped therabands, small weights, sliders
-Equipment Substitutions: Dictionaries, pillows, dish towels, canned goods, socks

Join us Mondays at 7:45 Central for a special 5-week beginner and drop-in-friendly series with Dauntless Dance Company member Ariel Celeste focusing on developing the foundational shapes and moves found in MENAHT-inspired dance, (colloquially termed ‘bellydance’.)

Each class will begin with a short introduction to some common Arabic rhythms, and then focus on a single shape and the different ways we can make those shapes with body isolations that suit each individuals’ body mechanics. These classes will help students build basic dance vocabulary to which they can apply the varied styles of the MENAHT region and provide an introduction to classic bellydance music.

You may use a yoga mat (not required), small pillow, or towel for the warm-up.

Classes are open to adults of all shapes, sizes, orientations, fitness/experience levels, genders, and walks of life.

For class info, tech support, registration and more join us in the Dauntless Online Adventures group.

If you're experiencing financial challenges during the current crisis, we have programming in place to keep you moving, no questions asked. If you'd like to support our nonprofit studio's ability to provide access to classes to folks who need a hand while continuing to compensate our team of performing artists and fitness professionals, p.m. us!

New Session of our Choreography class with Ariel and Kim Starts this Week!

Kimberly Larkspur and Ariel Celeste have been crackin' out choreographies in a red hot hurry since early spring and are currently developing a suite of mid-century Am Cab-inspired short pieces for their Thursday evening Choreography class. Up next: balancing prop! Grab your pot, tray, or a fat old paper back, pop it on your noggin, and hop into this quick, fun piece. The series of short dances can be used modularly to build a set, and support/rehearsal tools are provided.

Curious about cued improv? We have a new session of Level 1 of Improv Team Sync starting up this Monday, and it's got a little something extra: we'll be discussing working fast improv to music in compound and asymmetrical meter in addition to introducing the usual level 1 content (we promise it's not scary!).

Our Level 1 ITS class is open to all adults (and older teens), and if you'd like a little time to get acquainted with basic isolation shapes before you jump in, we highly recommend Belly Dance Fundamentals!

For registration info, class links, tech support, and much more, join us in Dauntless Online Adventures.

If things are tight, and class fees are out of reach right now, we've got ya covered! Thanks to generous donations from around the community, we have programming in place to help keep folks moving even when things are tight. You don't have to be an established student to access tuition-free classes; new-comers, people who've never studied dance, and folks in general are welcome, and we'd love to dance with you. P.M. us for details.

If you'd like to support us in our mission of keeping our community connected and moving and our team of performing artists and fitness professionals at work, all donations to our nonprofit studio are tax-deductible.

Our resident professional company is runnin' all over town getting their ITS on, and they'd love to dance with you! Wanna give cued improv a shot? A new session of Level 1 ITS begins on 8/26!

Will you have a makeup and hair class again sometime in the future? 🙏
A brand new session of Level 1 ITS begins this Monday with a fresh-from-Brazil (where she got a fresh infusion from format-creator Amy Sigil) Kimberly Larkspur! Pop in at 6:30 and fall in love!
Hello dancers, I am writing to inform you that unfortunately, I have to cancel my class tonight as my son is home very ill with the flu. My drum solo class will be rescheduled for Thursday, Feb 7th at 6:30. BUT you can still get your folkloric fix on tonight as I have asked Sandra to fill in for me and she has graciously accepted! She will be teaching an "Intro to Dabke" class tonight at Dauntless Dance at 6:30pm. Here is the class description: Sandra continues the “fun folklore” theme for January at Dauntless Dance! Join her for a class which will introduce you to this fun social dance from the Levant. She will discuss what rhythm is used for dabke, what the cultural context for the dance is (who is doing this and where), some of the regional stylistic differences and what its relationship to belly dance is. You will learn basic foot patterns as well as two combinations, one with Lebanese styling and one with Palestinian styling. Get ready to dance! About Sandra: Sandra has trained extensively in different styles of dabke under the instruction of Lebanese Simon, and has also studied dabke in Lebanon; she is currently a member of the Al Awtar Dabke Troupe. She is also is a professional belly dancer and performs weekly shows in Houston and surrounding areas.
I'll be back for a few weeks around the Christmas Holidays...you've been warned 🙂
We are back in town and I would love to share some mat time with you today at 5:30... we will create a glorious flow of positive energy... come move with us...be a part of it ! Celebrate life ! Dauntless Dance and Movement
I'll be back in Houston for a month, starting the 13th of Aug. I'm looking forward to taking some classes. Are you running the same weekly schedule?
