History of Boni’s Dance & Performing Arts Studio

Boni’s Dance & Performing Arts Studio was established in 1984 by Bonnie Schuetz, Owner and Artistic Director who had a dream of teaching the art and joy of dance to students. 40 years ago, she began her dream by teaching in her garage in The Woodlands in 1983. Her dream sparked an explosion that erupted the moment she opened her doors. In 1984, her dream became a reality when she opened her first Boni’s location in a one room studio in Panther Creek Village Center.

Throughout the years, Boni’s Dance and Performing Arts Studio has attracted thousands of dancers throughout the community and surrounding areas. Students have enjoyed the opportunity to learn and experience dance on a recreational level as well as a professional level through daily classes, summer programs, ‘Boni’s En Toure’ Competitive Team, ‘The Woodland’s Dance Company’s’ annual performances of The Nutcracker, their Pre-Professional Ballet Company, ‘Boni’s En Avant’, their performing company Boni's En Stage & their liturgical company ‘With Graceful Praise’ as well as their annual Spring recital productions at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

The instruction, patience, discipline, and personal touch paid off with the opening of a state of the art studio in 1999 on Research Forest. The 15,000 square foot facility includes seven separate classrooms with viewing windows for parents, dressing rooms, dance Boutique, and Café Tutu.

Miss Boni says “It is our vision to make each child’s experience enjoyable as they explore dance for fun, exercise or for professional training. We have made it our mission to develop each student to the fullest potential by nurturing them in a positive and loving atmosphere. Dance is a way of life. Dance develops poise, discipline and personal fulfillment as well as the appreciation of dance as an art form. Dance is hard work, striving and achieving goals. A dancer is an athlete of the arts.”

40 years later opening Boni’s currently employs 50 teachers and staff that she calls “Family” and has over 1400 students and 3 locations in The Woodlands at:
