Best Bets for June 28-30 | The Bainbridge Blab

In the last weekend before the biggest party of the year begins again (looking at you Grand Old Fourth of July), there are several choice choices for those looking to get and about on Bainbridge.

Bainbridge Dance Center’s 38th Annual Student Performance is back at Bainbridge Performing Arts, with shows at 7 p.m. Friday and also 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday.

Over the course of four performances, dancers age 4 to 18 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.

Tickets are $16 to $20 each, visit to learn more and purchase.
