Deborah Kochert, began studying dance at the age of 7 years old. By 14, she was teaching her own dance class, and by the time she graduated from Crawfordsville High School in 1990 she had already been a teacher, choreographer and back up dancer.
Kochert was born in Staten Island, N.Y. in 1972 to Jim and Grace Kochert. Kochert’s father had been a career military man. When Kochert was 2 years old, her father packed up the family and moved to Crawfordsville, where Kochert’s father grew up. Kochert said that her father wanted his children to grow up here as well. “He was from here and felt it was a good place to raise a family,” Kochert said.
Kochert said she wasn’t particularly thrilled with the idea of college, so after high school, she was relieved to have her parents blessing in continuing to follow her passion in dance. “I was already doing what I loved and shown I was able to make a living doing it. My calendar was always full,” Kochert said. She began in a rented space, however, with the support of her family, she invested in herself and her love of dance, and bought the building on the corner of Main and Green streets in downtown Crawfordsville.
Question of the Week:

The Haan Mansion Museum presents a series of 100 wheel-thrown porcelain cups by Julia Livingston in an exhibition culminating her life’s work as a ceramic artist. Livingston began her exploration as a simple idea to create 100 cups in prolific succession, and it unfolded into a dramatic documentation of a life-affirming creative process. Each of the hundred cups is a separate unique work, and the “100 Cups” collection is itself an artwork that is a unity of the individual pieces forming a continuous flow. During the two years of the 100 Cups project, the cups evolved to express a changing internal landscape brought about by critical events in her life, notably, the death of her mother in Cup 84, and at Cup 94, titled “Splitting Apart”, the shock of her own life threatening illness. Cup 100, titled “End Point,” marked the end of the project, yet pointed to an unknown more. Along with the 100 Cups series, many of Livingston’s works from early to recent have been displayed at the Haan Mansion Museum, and many are part of the permanent collection.
