PATCHWORK DANCE COMPANY is a regional, non-profit, contemporary company dedicated to enriching audiences through performances and outreach programs. Patchwork performs choreography of both nationally recognized and resident choreographers.
Founded by Artistic Director, Debbie Werbrouck, Patchwork has provided benefits to the Michiana community since 1977. Patchwork’s performance season includes the original children’s holiday story in dance, “Christopher’s Christmas” which has become Michiana’s own holiday tradition.
Patchwork’s dedication to the arts reaches into the realm of education through special youth concerts, in-school workshops and lecture demonstrations. The acclaimed “Academics in Action” program brings learning to life for primary grade students.
Patchwork’s impact has extended beyond the Michiana community with performances, lecture demonstrations, workshops and master classes. The city of Chicago, Triton and Saint Mary’s Colleges, Chicago National Association of Dance Masters are a few of hosts of Patchwork performances. In addition to performances in the US, Patchwork has also enjoyed a performance tour of England and Scotland.
Patchwork enjoys the talents of both resident and guest choreographers at fall and spring concerts. “Artistic Fusion” is a collaborative event between Patchwork and regional artists Lauren Bergstrand, Hillary Mason and Mark Shubert. The 2017 date is September 16 at Battell Community Center in Mishawaka.
“Explorations in Dance” is PDC’s spring concert, March 18 & 19 at O’Laughlin Auditorium. The spring concert is the culmination of the year-long work of choreographers and dancers. Be sure to mark your calendars for these events.
