"Bonnie has been an inspiration and the moving force for dance in the
South Bend area for almost 40 years. She is a founder of the Southold
Dance Theater in South Bend. In 1975 she opened the Dancenter in
Granger, a studio dedicated to training both modern dance and ballet. Ms.
Baxter, who grew up in North Judson, was named artistic director of
Southold in 1982 and held that position for many years. In that capacity,
Ms. Baxter developed youth concerts, performing for thousands of school
children each year. For many of the children, it was their first experience
with dance. She used live music through collaborations with the South
Bend Symphony Orchestra
Elkhart Symphony Orchestra
South Bend Regional Museum of Art
Firefly Festival, South Bend Heritage Foundation and other organizations."
