Bainbridge Dance Center’s 38th Annual Student Performance

BDC Logo.jpg

Over the course of four performances, dancers age four to eighteen will be featured in short works choreographed by the BDC Faculty demonstrating student artistry and technical skill in ballet, modern, jazz and tap techniques. A celebrated island tradition since 1981, BDC’s performances showcase how young dancers develop over the course of years of training. Join us for this celebration of the craft and artistry of dance. 

A highlight of this year’s performance will be Rainbow Etude (1996) a short piece created by the acclaimed choreographer Donald McKayle based on his masterwork Rainbow ‘Round My Shoulder (1959). Randall Anthony Smith, Mr. McKayle’s répétiteur and assistant, came to Bainbridge this January to set Rainbow Etude on BDC’s Advanced Dancers and explore with them the context of racism and social justice integral to the work. The Ballet Repertory dancers will perform the ever popular White Act from Swan Lake showcasing some of the most beautiful (and difficult!) variations in all of classical ballet, while the Tap Repertory dancers have choreographed a show-stopping finale to the music of Queen.

Founded in 1981, Bainbridge Dance Center is dedicated to providing high-quality dance education focused on cultivating curiosity, generosity, and professionalism. We offer classes in creative movement, ballet, modern, jazz, tap, pilates and dance composition for children and adults. Visit online at
