In 1991, dancers Kathy Hamrick and Kate Warren opened Hamrick/Warren Dance, a professional modern dance school. Starting with just three modern classes a week and renting studio space at a Montessori school, they soon expanded their curriculum, adding yoga and increasing the number of modern classes. In 1994, to meet the growing demand for their classes, Kathy and Kate moved to their current location at Cafe Dance where they now offer on-going classes in Beginning through Advanced Modern Dance, Yoga and Seniors Yoga.

Hamrick/Warren featured in Dance Studio Life Magazine

For two women in Austin, Texas, modern dance is the center of the universe. This universe is kept spinning by three separate but interconnected entities—a physical dance space, a dance school offering classes for serious adults, and a dance company. Both the women and their businesses are devoted to the teaching, making, and performing of modern dance. read more…


Kate Warren

Kate Warren, dancer, teacher, choreographer, was born in Austin,TX and attended Texas Tech University where she trained as a repertory dancer. She danced with several companies including Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company and Chaddick Dance Theater.   Kate has performed in works by over 30 choreographers, some of which include David Gordon, Margaret Jenkins, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane, Merce Cunningham, and has performed in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico, and Minneapolis.  Her choreography has been performed by Wanderlust Dance Theater, Motor Dance, Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company and Chaddick Dance Theater.  Her pieces, “Fugue State” and “Exceptional Utopias” were nominated for best choreography by the Austin Chronicle.  Investigation, movement intelligence, and deep listening are the starting points of every class.  Technique is taught from a Feldenkrais point of view which inspires technical pondering.  Each dancer is looked at and encouraged to insert themselves in the middle of possibility.  Throughout the class, the dancers are guided and prodded towards their artistry which results in honest and daring dancing.  Students describe these classes as quietly difficult, permissive and humbling, with mind boggling phrases that feed the dancing soul.

Kathy Dunn Hamrick

Kathy received her MFA in Peformance and Choreography from Florida State University. She has taught at Stephen F. Austin State University, FSU and the University of Texas at Austin, and currently teaches at Austin Community College and St. Edwards University. She is Artistic Director of the award-winning modern dance company, the Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company.
Hamrick’s movement requires a quick and intelligent mind, a sense of humor, and a daring to trust the moving and still body.  Dance phrases are all about the detour with bad-ass and compelling floor work.

Alyson Dolan

Alyson Dolan is a dancer, choreographer, and teacher with a BFA in Dance from Florida State University. Alyson has had the opportunity to perform and present her choreography throughout the United States, as well as teach and set work on professional companies, students, and individuals of all ages, abilities, and experience. Her interest in artistic collaboration has also lead her to work with visual artists, writers, composers, and musicians, in addition to fellow movement artists. Currently Alyson is the Resident Choreographer for Fuzión Dance Artists in Sarasota, Florida and a dancer with Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company here in Austin.  Classes begin on the floor and continue with a constant reminder of deeply rooted contact.  Spacious, athletic, and often inverted phrases are explored and have been described as lush and clear with a horizontal, painterly sweep.  Dancers are encouraged to bring awareness to sensation, movement efficiency, and individual performance throughout class, promoting introspection, ownership, and acknowledgement of our unique bodies.  A rich sense of community and support is fostered as the dancers are guided to fall, roll, and fly across the floor together.
