Dance Another World
Dance Another World is a community based non-profit organization in Austin, Texas. Dance Another World's programs use dance and movement as a vehicle to teach English to English Language Learners in Austin Independent School District. DAW primarily serves low income schools in an after-school programmatic setting, offers school-day programs as an elective course, and hosts annual showcases and free events for the Austin community at large.
Starting in the fall of 2017, Audrey piloted a strategic partnership between Dance Another World (DAW) and Corazon Latino (CL) Dance Studio in South Austin. Starting off as a volunteer, Audrey coordinated space sharing and staff sharing arrangements between DAW and CL to foster a mutually beneficial opportunity for both parties to retain teachers and provide them with (non-competing) opportunities to make additional income. Audrey is now working with DAW, as a leadership and organizational development consultant while DAW grows and expands it's mission to impact communities overseas!
