Many of Miss Dawn's students have gone on to pursue careers in the dance field, both performing and teaching. A number of her students have earned high school and college scholarships for dance, as well as acheived internships and intensives with such companies as The Alvin Ailey Dance Company, Broadway Dance Center, and The Ballet Theatre of Maryland (formerly The Ballet Theatre of Annapolis).
During the day, Dawn works with special needs children for the Anne Arundle County Public School System, and is the proud mother of 4 children and one grandson.
