Dedicated to Ballet
Donata Bonini has been teaching the art of dance to students at Rochelle School of the Arts since 1999. Each year, Ms. Bonini incorporates more of her love for classical dance pieces into the students’ performances.
In December, she directed a cast of over 120 students from the first through eighth grades in the complete classical production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. The cast shared the stage for two sold out performances in the school theater.
