The Long Center is currently evaluating its calendar of events. Please see our Health and Updates page for the latest information.


Tapestry Dance Company, under the direction of co-founder Acia Gray is the world’s only full-time, professional repertory tap dance company and is celebrating its 30th Anniversary Season! Professional dancers from around the world audition for this company and have shared the power of rhythm and dance not only in Austin but through major presenters around the US and abroad.

This season, the company will premiere “Looking Forward / Looking Back”—a tribute to the company’s history, legacy and future with alumni dancers returning to choreograph new works on the company including Nicholas Van Young (Associate Director of Dorrance Dance), Tasha Lawson (TriTone Productions, Calgary Alberta Canada), Jason Janas (acclaimed master teacher and choreographer worldwise), Jeremy Arnold (University of Texas Dance Faculty) and others!

Come celebrate the company’s 30th Birthday as well as the headlining careers of those who started their professional career with Tapestry! Changing lives one step at a time!
