Performances By Children,
For Children
Children five years and older are invited to participate
in the  Student Performances that include class
demonstrations and choreographed dances, usually
set to a story.  Students are not required to perform
but encouraged to do so. Class time is dedicated to
the further development of the curriculum with an
extended study that becomes a dance for the student
performance.

Bonnie Boilini Baxter inducted into the Community Hall of Fame
"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."

Everyone Moves --
Classes for All Ages
As we move through space in
time, everyday we dance.  A
movement experience at an
early age can enrich and
encourage the natural mover in
all of us. Children are
wondrously creative. Dance can
further stimulate self
expression, employing both the
body and the mind. Creative
movement for children
encourages the ability to focus,
increases discipline and
develops body awareness
and alignment.
