Calling all Dance Artists and Organizations!

Please note that Dance Source Houston strives to keep the cost of membership at a minimum, and that the benefits listed below are underwritten in part by support from the Houston Arts Alliance and The Houston Endowment.
Together, our combined strength ensures that dance assumes its rightful place in Houston’s art scene, and that Houston takes its place among the top dance communities in the country.
