Mary Dow

Dance and Movement Instructor

Baker Demonstration School

When did you start working at Baker?

What do you like best about working at Baker?
Working at Baker is important to me because each child is viewed as an individual. Every student gathers and processes information in the world differently. Here at Baker we understand and celebrate that! I am encouraged as a teacher each time one of my students is able to grow more confident in who they are, through movement and choreography in my dance class.

What is the greatest gift you hope to bestow upon your students?
The greatest gift that I can share with my students is that anyone can dance! Our bodies and souls are meant to move and celebrate in any way that feels joyful to us. For each person that means something very different. Movement is a gift that we can give ourselves and feel good sharing with others.

What is a fun fact about yourself?
I am a retired professional dancer and choreographer having toured performing and teaching throughout Europe, New York, Las Vegas, and Chicago. I’m also a sports Mom. I am most often the loudest fan cheering in the stands, supporting my kids! This year we will be cheering for our college QB at the University of Dayton. I also make a MEAN chocolate chip cookie!
