Hope Stone, Inc.

Most Houston arts companies would say that they want people of every color, size, age, gender, ethnicity and ability in their audience. Hope Stone, founded in 1997 and located in the River Oaks/Montrose area, goes one better and puts people of every color, size, age, gender, ethnicity and ability onstage, too. Choreographer/artistic director/resident janitor Jane Weiner (hey, that's her joke, not ours) is the driving force behind the dance company and school, and it's her "everybody's welcome" philosophy that guides the group. Year-round classes are available for kids and adults, and the professional company puts on full seasons in Houston in addition to touring.
