Bonnie Cox

Bonnie Cox received her BFA in dance from Texas State University in 2011 where she was a student teacher and member of Merge Dance Company. She danced with Diverse Space Dance Theater, Sharon Marroquin, Shay Ishii Dance Company and Nicole Roerick Collective in Austin, Texas. Bonnie has studied with acclaimed national and international choreographers and has performed in New York City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. She has taught modern, ballet, jazz, hip hop and creative movement at Production Company Dance Centre, Illusion Dance Center, St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, Cedar Park Dance Company and Texas State University. Bonnie advocates using the body as a voice and movement as a means to understand the self and process experiences. Her piece, Quieted, a solo work that explores the cyclical nature of intimate partner abuse, was performed at various venues in Texas in 2012, including the Brazos Contemporary Dance Festival in College Station. In 2014 she was nominated for an Austin Chronicle critic’s choice award for her production Silence to Power: Dance as a response to trauma, through which she encouraged dance artists to transform trauma and societal pressures into growth and power through performance and choreography. Bonnie is currently pursing an MFA in Dance at the University of Colorado Boulder where she is investigating how dance can empower both practitioners and audience members on a psychological level. She currently teaches modern technique and dance theory courses as a graduate instructor at CU.
