Cheri Crabtree is a certified dance educator through Dance Masters of America and an active member of Carolina Dance Masters since 2004.  She is also an active member of the National Dance Education Organization where she continues to develop in her field annually.  She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dance with 17 years of professional experience including dance studio business ownership, dance and theatre performance, teaching ages 2-adult, master class workshops, competition adjudication, choreography and team coaching, as well as, direction in dance programs, musical theatre productions and benefit programs in multiple counties.

As an educator, Mrs. Crabtree strives to develop dance students intellectually and artistically as expressive self motivators to appreciate, advocate for, and succeed in dance and fine arts, whether as a career choice or recreational benefit.  Cheri has lead dancers to national winning ranks and guided students to successful careers.  She strives to instill a sense of accountability, responsibility, discipline, passion, and artistic ability through the art of dance in all of her students. 

 "I love watching students grow a passion and appreciation of an art form.  Seeing students develop body awareness, and succeed in skills or tasks they have never engaged in is a beautiful experience. This will be my 6th year at West, and I can't wait to work with all of my students!  I am a wife of 13 years, have a 7 year old son named, Ayden,  a 2 year old Yorkie Poo named "Reece Cup", and a puppy Boston Terrier named "Millie Vanillie".
