"It was very rewarding to provide this service to so many children that were unable to afford dance education. I was able to watch them grow in the arts."
Shortly after graduating form college she returned to her Alma Mater, Carter High School, to become a leader in her community through teaching. Her first year, she taught Sign Language. The following year Dawson transitioned to become the Dance Teacher. Under her leadership and collaboration the Dance Department has offered a variety of Master classes to the students from some of the greatest Dance Companies.
