Brenden James Baker

This years production of "The Nutcracker" is dedicated to Brenden Baker   We miss you buddy! 

Tragedy struck Abilene when we lost a huge personality.  Brenden Baker was a student and favorite of the Dance, Ltd. Family.  His huge personality was always a hit on stage, wether it be in "The Nutcracker", "Alice in Wonderland", "Cinderella" or just showing off for Fly Dance Co.  
Brenden will always be missed.   He was the biggest "Little Person" I ever met.  With a very rare type of dwarfism it was difficult not to notice him.  He passed away at the age of thirteen.  We just know he is teaching all those angels to tap dance.  We are dedicating this years production of "Alice in Wonderland" in memory of his stellar performance of the 2011 version of this production.
