Happy Mid-Winter Break!

This week February 17-23 is Mid-Winter Break and there are no BDC classes. Classes start back Sunday Feb 24.

If you would like to make-up a class you missed due to the snow, you can choose one in your own level (great time to try a new discipline like modern or tap!) or in the level above or below. Just give us a heads up. Miss you all and hope to see you soon!

Molissa Fenley first came to BDC in September 2017 when she helped set Energizer (1980) on the Advanced Repertory dancers. She will return in May 2019 for a co-residency at the Bloedel Reserve and Bainbridge Dance Center. During her residency she will be creating the fifth section of her work The Cosmati Variations, a work set to the third and final Construction by John Cage inspired by the Cosmati mosaics in Rome. During her time at BDC she will be working with Pacific Northwest Ballet principal dancer Jonathan Poretta and BDC Director Christiana Axelsen.



We are delighted to welcome Randall Anthony Smith to Bainbridge Dance Center for one week this January 2019.
