The Dance Center has established relationships through out the Bozeman community and around the world. We offer dance residencies in public and private schools, such as Hawthorne Elementary, Longfellow, Whittier, Emily Dickinson and Learning Circle Montessori. Learning dance with us will be fun but purposeful. We learn to put on that "creative hat" while teaching self-control, personal space, silent communication and musicality. You will see our dedicated dancers performing around the community at Christmas Stroll, the Bozeman Public Library, the Bozeman Senior Center and Aspen Pointe among others.

Ms. Deborah Yarington has a spirit for travel. She found herself in the Kingdom of Bhutan in 2017 with a passion to teach. Tandin Wangyel, Principal of Tshapel Lower Secondary School in Haa, welcomed Ms. Deborah to volunteer for a dance residency at his school for one month. Her two decades of teaching dance combined with only speaking English proved to be a remarkable experience for the students. Not only were the students moving and dancing, they were simultaneously learning pronunciation and being introduced to new vocabulary. Ms. Yarington taught Kindergarten through Class 4, three times per week for four weeks. The local teachers acquired original ideas, alternative techniques and theories to share with their students. The final performance had the audience in tears!
