Maureen Cavanaugh Crane I am a 1996 graduate of the Harbor Ballet Theatre. The sound technical, musical and creative foundation I received during my time at the studio has allowed dance and dance education to remain at the center of my life for twenty years. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in classical ballet (teaching and choreography) from Mercyhurst University and I currently teach ballet, pre-pointe and pointe at Cleveland Ballet Conservatory (North Royalton, Ohio). My 9-year-old daughter has fallen in love with ballet; being the mom of an aspiring ballerina has only increased my appreciation for the balanced, kinesthetically appropriate training I received as a young dancer. Dance education that prioritizes the physical and emotional health of young dancers as they grow into mature artists is essential. I will always be grateful to Amy, John and the faculty at Amy Tyler School of dance for the lifelong positive impact they made in my life.
