Comedy

“Dance Dreams” at Hideout Theatre. “Dance Dreams: Life in Dance, Improvised” goes behind the scenes of a ballet company — behind the tulle and ribbon, the sweat and callouses — to reveal a troupe of driven, ambitious artists who will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams. Each week, “Dance Dreams” improvises the story of this fictional dance company, covering their struggles, triumphs and rivalries. And yes, there will be actual dancing, both improvised and choreographed. 8 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 23. $15. 617 Congress Ave. hideouttheatre.com.

Family

At this monthly family-friendly event, make a painting using your whole body, and also practice throwing paper pulp to create a work of art inspired by artist Wangechi Mutu’s exhibit, on display at both the Jones Center and Laguna Gloria. This creative afternoon is recommended for ages 2 to 11. 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. 700 Congress Ave. thecontemporaryaustin.org.
