Bonni Bigler

Bonni began dancing at the age of 19. With a little talent and the help of a couple of amazing friends/teachers she was soon teaching and choreographing as a career. Bonni’s experience with cheer and gymnastics led to her college dance experience at GC&SU with the Sassy Cats dance team and then to earning her minor in dance. Bonni was taken on as a faculty member at Studio One School of Dance in Milledgeville, GA. Her time at Studio One exposed her to every facet of the dance world: stage and audio production, costuming, instruction, choreography, competition, and studio management on the high school, middle school, community theatre, studio and university levels. 

Bonni moved to Atlanta in 2007 where she danced with the Atlanta Dance Project and began taking classes with Zoetic Dance Ensemble. She is the founder of Druid Hills Dance Center.
