Home At the Barre – Adult Ballet, the fourth book in the Garage Ballet series, is a comprehensive guidebook for the adult ballet student. Ballet is a great exercise choice for adults because the steps and combinations press you to work, help you maintain strength levels, stay flexible, and most importantly, make you think about what you’re doing.
An experienced ballet instructor for over forty years, Dawn C Crouch can undoubtedly relate to being an adult. But, as a teacher who continues to take class, she wants every potential student to understand the class requirements and expectations that are unique to adult ballet curricula.
The Benefits of Ballet training as an adult create a great Home at the Barre!
“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.”
Phillip Otto – Artistic Director, Huntsville Ballet
“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.”
Madison Grace Lynn – Savannah Ballet
“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.”
