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.
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.
