Celebrating 24 Years

Puerto Rican Cultural Center

We are celebrating 24 Years!
On September 10, 1997, we started with *nothing* but dreams. We launched our 1st class in a rented ballet studio with “baby ducks” painted on the back wall. Our first performance featured two homemade costumes, recorded music, and a flag.
Today we are the only Puerto Rican Cultural Center in the Southwest & Texas affiliated with the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture for ongoing programming!
We are a community bonded like family under an umbrella of cultural arts. It takes a village to raise a child. We are that village, for them and for each other.

Our cultural center’s survival is made possible through grants funding, CARES Act, and ARP support by the National Endowment for the Arts, Humanities Texas, National Endowment for the Humanities, Texas Commission on the Arts, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture, and the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
Appreciate our mission?
