What once started as a group of dedicated Latin dancers who recognized a need for quality Latin dance classes in Austin, Texas, established Inspired Movement in 2012. Founder and Director, Favian Bustos, aimed to bring world class Bachata training, classes, events, and instructors to Austin to build the knowledge and art of Bachata dancing. Expanding off of that idea, Inspired Movement started to recently include Salsa, Kizomba, and Zouk to cover the most popular trends of Latin dancing by exposing their students to not just one, but many different styles from all over the word. Come and be a part of the Inspired Movement family and feel inspired to move one dance at a time!
"We are a motivated group of Inspired individuals united in the effort to join the Austin Latin dance community through instruction, social events, and passion for Movement."
