Some Reviews of Ms. Crossley include: Today Magazine, New York.. "Miss Crossley of the Toronto Ballet was magnificent in her co-ordinated precision and elegance.". Michael Bouche. The Globe & Mail: Marcia Crossley is lean, lithe and very dramatic. Her great strength is her lyrical arm movements and ability to execute difficult partnering with perfect precision." Barbara Gayle Rose.
This is her fourth year teaching at The Bayview School of the Arts. " The students here are a joy to teach as I have witnessed their improvement, artistic development and growing love and dedication to the Dance. The discipline and attention to detail will carry over to all aspects and endeavors of their life!" M. Crossley-Cohen.
Marcia Crossley- Cohen
I have been dancing since I was 5 years old and It has always been my passion. I graduate Karpov Ballet Academy and during my studies have been teaching ballet and jazz at the studio that inspired me. After graduating from their academy I decided that to share my experience and knowledge of dance with others. Throughout the years of competitive dance, I realized it is more than just fun, it is a commitment that has many mental and physical benefits. I hope to inspire and teach children and adult of all ages the benefits of dance while I am here teaching at this studio.
