As a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of dance in Houston, DSH is an invaluable resource. It is the only such organization offering numerous services to the Houston dance community. DSH provides a centralized location listing all events, opportunities, reviews, and performances benefiting dancers, choreographers, students, and patrons alike.

Dance Source Houston is a asset to the Houston arts community. They're an incredible resource for all forms of dance in and around greater Houston. Not only do they inform the general public of upcoming shows and opportunities, they also service artists by letting them know of auditions and master classes. They post interesting articles, press releases, and expand your connections to not just dance, but to many fields of art (performing, visual, etc).

I recently moved to Houston. It is so helpful to know were to go to see what is happening in the dance community. This city is sprawling and it is hard to know where to go for class, performances, and rehearsal space. Thank you for all you do!

Dance Source Houston serves as an inovative clearing house for all things dance in our community. Not a small task in a large city like Houston. You know you can rely on them for up to the minute information for performances, auditions, classes and news in the dance community. Without this organization the common thread through Houston dance will be gone.

Dance Source Houston has revolutionized the dance scene hear. I feel so connected to everything that's going on now. The weekly e-newsletter makes it so easy to spread the word about auditions, performances and shows...and to keep up with what everyone else is doing, too. The adminstrative assistance offered to small dance companies through a reasonably priced membership is outstandingly helpful. I love Dance Source Houston!

Dance Source Houston is an important resource for the entire city. It offers a one stop listing of one of the major cultural segments of our city. Without their newsletter it would be difficult or impossible to follow the Houston Dance scene. Bravo!...Brava!

CORE Performance Company operates in both Houston and Atlanta (and tours nationally and internationally). As Communications Manager for CORE Performance Company, I have worked closely with Dance Source Houston over many years in promoting Houston's dance scene generally and specifically our performances and events/workshops through their services such as the enews, website, DanceCard, Dance Table and postcard distribution. I like what they do so much, I have joined with other Atlanta dance administrators to help create DanceATL, which will offer many of the same services as DSH to the Atlanta dance community.

DSH keeps me informed of upcoming performances, reviews, workshops, and other dance related activities in Houston and surrounding areas. It provides me with opportunities for business as well as my long term personal project to document dance in Texas, via their weekly e-letter and web site. The elisting also provides me with the opportunity to advertise my photography services along with showcasing performances in Texas. DSH also occasionally hires me to cover their Dance Festival at the MIller, and other performances (such as the Dance USA show).
