Hancock Rec CenterOn December 10th Austin Parks and Rec Department announced that HRC will return to ‘normal’ programming on Jan 3rd, and AIFD will dance at Hancock Recreation Center in person beginning Jan 7th, COVID permitting of course. Right now Austin is at Stage 3, but if it changes to 4 or 5, things could change.
