Glen Dawson: Dance Instructor
What motivated and inspired you to teach? I'm inspired by the joy I feel when watching students learn skills, use creative thoughts, and develop identity and self-esteem.
What makes you excited to come to school every day? The students, faculty, and environment. I love having the ability to teach what I know and have the freedom to be creative.
What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom? I want my dancers to learn independence, integrity, and the importance of community and self-motivation.
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself! I work in the wine industry. I have picked grapes and worked in the tank room, helped make wine, teach wine classes, and worked with Robert Mondavi and Kendall Jackson.
What is your favorite book and why? Anything by Jane Austen. I love the spirit of her novels and the time period.
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be? Lady Godiva, Audrey Hepburn, and Jesus.
