Bernadette Bricker grew up in Frankfort and started ballet at the age of four with Kirsten Maish. She then continued dance at the Tap Academy for 10 years, up until her senior solo in 2009. She attended IU and earned a degree in Elementary Education. She has been working at Clinton Central for 7 years and helped create their PreK program. She will be taking some time off from teaching to stay home with her new baby girl. Her passion is early childhood, and she is excited to be helping The Tap Academy use that passion with dance for the third year!
