There is no teacher I would trust more with the training of my dancers than Dawn Crouch. Her approach to a dancer’s ballet education is by far her greatest strength.
Having Dawn Crouch as a teacher from a young age has molded me into not only the dancer but the person I am today.
Miss Dawn Is a teacher who always boosted my confidence. She went beyond the simple technique of ballet and allowed ballet class to be a haven for artistic expression. As I now teach young students ballet, I hope to instill the same confidence and artistry that Miss Dawn cultivated in me.
I have had the great honor to have Miss Dawn as one of my teachers. She is an incredible teacher with such a great knowledge of the art of ballet. The corrections she gave me as a student are still helping me in my professional dance career today! She’s amazing!
I was so lucky to have such an inspiring ballet teacher like Dawn Crouch growing up. The wisdom that Miss Dawn shared with me helped me become a better dancer and more importantly, a better person.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Perfect Guidebook for Adult Dancers! I am a huge fan of the Garage Ballet resource books and am especially excited about Home At the Barre – Adult Ballet. With her signature warmth and wit, Dawn C. Crouch writes intentionally to “encourage you to take the first step into the studio, commit to a regular routine, and win the mind game that adults often wage with themselves over age and self-image.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Makes me want to dance!Ballet Helps Everything! has motivated me to take up ballet to improve my riding. This is not a how-to-dance book, but it’s a fantastic why-to-dance book.
I had the good fortune of being trained by Dawn Crouch. She instilled not only technique and work ethic but a love for the arts that still drives me today in my dancing and in training the next generation.
