The Austin Tap Ensemble at Art Beat Dance Center and The Art Beat Foundation

The Austin Tap Ensemble

The Austin Tap Ensemble exists to foster a passion for tap dance in a joyful, loving, and accepting community. ATE began in 2013 under the direction of Brenna Kuhn.

The Austin Tap Ensemble believes that high-quality dance entertainment should be accessible to everyone, so they bring rhythm tap performances to the Central Texas community for low- or no-cost. ATE has performed at Meals on Wheels - Mike's Place, Westminster Senior Living, The Pointe at Cedar Park, Balcones Woods Country Club, Texas Legislative Council, the Anderson Mill West Neighborhood Association, Soul2Sole Tap Festival, Third Coast Rhythm Project, Tap It Up, and True Sound Rhythm Project.

Pulse Dance Company at Art Beat Dance Center

Pulse Dance Co.

The goal of Art Beat Dance Center's Pulse Dance Company is to enable dancers aged 12-18 to experience a pre-professional dance company, to nurture their growth as performers, and to encourage excellence in each individual student. Pulse is committed to fostering a sense of community as well as a safe haven for dancers to explore their creative and artistic potential. The resident and guest faculty for Pulse are professionally trained teachers, performers, and choreographers who strive to help each student recognize his or her potential as a performer and an individual.

Performances serve as a vehicle for allowing dancers the opportunity to experience the discipline of a dance career and the joy of working with others in a cohesive group setting. Pulse has performed at the Austin Spurs, the Texas Stars, CryoFire Health and Wellness Open House, Heritage Oaks Senior Living, Balcones Woods Country Club and Auberge at Cedar Park Memory Care Center.
