Austin Belly Dance Convention

The secret is out! Austin is the hip and happening city. We are the Live Music Capital of the world. Our restaurant (including our truck culture) and bar scene (have you heard of 6th Street?) matches our legendary music status. Plus, Austin is very beautiful. We have an energetic downtown, East side, and South side for those urbanites. And for nature lovers, we have parks galore and hiking in the Greenbelt.

So, stay in Austin for a few days after the ABDC and explore why Austin is one of the best U.S. cities to live in. Bring your family and then send them on their way to cool adventures while you dance. Of course, make sure they come back to see you perform!
