RUBYRICO PRODUCTIONS

combines live music and dance to produce gritty, dazzling, thematic onstage spectacles. Each show gathers a unique live band and
cast of performers around a particular artist, genre, record label, cultural movement or period in history to explore the world within those boundaries, and its legacy for the world today.

RubyRico is the only company in Austin that focuses solely upon the combination of live music and dance. We've packed theaters and nightclubs since 2005 with shows that thrill audiences through their passion, humor and daring, as well as a deep knowledge and love of the subjects they feature.

And if you'd planned to donate but somehow missed the campaign deadline,
don't worry:
We will still happily accept your money! Just email us at

THANK YOU, RUBYRICO LOVERS!  WE COULDN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!

RUBYRICO IN THE MOVIES - 'BERNIE' with JACK BLACK  

RubyRico's own Ellen Stader had the immense pleasure of dancing with Jack Black in the new Rick Linklater movie, BERNIE, a dark comedy set in small-town Texas which also stars Matthew McConaughey and the regal and terrifying Shirley Maclaine, along with dozens of beautifully cast Texan townspeople. 

(See the triumphant RubyRico film debut -- all .3 nanoseconds -- at :21 in the trailer above, and look for Ellen in the background of several other scenes throughout the movie.) Filming the 'Music Man' scene with more than 20 kids and grown dancers at the Gaslight Baker Theater in Lockhart was a total blast! 

And of course, it was the fulfillment of a longstanding dream to dance next to Jack Black -- a coordinated and natural mover, and also a total professional and seemingly a very sweet guy. Thanks to Linklater, JB, the other dancers and the whole crew for a great film experience.

                                              LIKE THE OSCARS - BUT TEXAN! 

 RubyRico is proud to be part of the entertainment
for this year's Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards,
Thursday, March 8 at ACL Live at the Moody Theater.

Several of RubyRico's dancers will perform alongside 
Grupo Fantasma, Suzanna Choffel and Nakia!  

We'll be dancing at the opening of the show, to get everyone's attention off Danny Trejo's foxy mustache.  


The Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards serve as the annual fundraiser that allows The Austin Film Society to provide grants to hundreds of Texas filmmakers every year.  

This year's honorees are screenwriter Douglas
McGrath, Barry Corbin, Danny Trejo and Meat Loaf.

Tickets to the awards ceremony are available at austinfilm.org.

Thanks to Craftbox Agency, Coco Coquette, and ACL Live!

DANCING WITH ROCK STARS

In February, RubyRico choreographer Ellen Stader had the opportunity to coach Ben Kweller on his moves for a video for his new album "Go Fly A Kite." Throwing ourselves around in his studio was fun; watching Ben walk around in green motion-capture pajamas was more fun! Thanks to Ben & Liz, and to Roka Music-Lask & Meredith DeLeon at Region-C for the great gig. 

RubyRico's multicultural funk
dance crew, the 
Sugarfoot Hustlers, 
are always performing around Austin.
 
See our schedule below, and keep
an eye on our Facebook page 
for invites and details. 

If you'd like the Sugarfoot Hustlers
to perform at your event, email us
at  info@rubyrico.com.
 

SHOUT SPEC'S! 

In January, Ellen's choreography and several of the Sugarfoot Hustlers appeared in a commercial for Spec's Liquors' 50th Anniversary! Many thanks go to Spec'sT-Bird and the Breaks (for the fine jingle), and Jeremy Sexton & Molly Humphrey at the Lee Tilford Agency.
