Founded in 1999, Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company is one of the longest-standing modern dance companies in Austin. Our mission is to provide engaging contemporary dance performances for the general public and supports arts education and community well-being through outreach and enrichment programs.
We have a 15-year history of presenting original works, collaborating with other dance companies, musicians and designers, and directing outreach programs for foster girls in residence at The Settlement Home. We also present the annual Austin Dance Festival, a series of modern dance concerts presenting the work of emerging and established artists for Austin audiences.
