"Our daughter Katy has been dancing at PV Ballet with Dawn for almost three years and we couldn’t be happier about her experience. Dawn and her team of instructors have been fantastic adapting Katy’s training to her skill level, body type and passion for dance. Our daughter’s goal was to pursue ballet at a high level in a pre-professional program, and the instruction Dawn gave to Katy was instrumental in her gaining admission to a full-time pre-professional program. However, Dawn was very clear from the beginning that any level of interest in dance would be fostered and no pressure was ever put on Katy to pursue dance at a high level. Katy’s enthusiasm for all types of dance has only grown over the time she has been at PV Ballet and Dawn has evolved from simply being a dance instructor to being a true mentor to Katy not only in dance but in life. Dawn Wolf and her team at Ponte Vedra Ballet have been the best dance experience for our daughter and for us as parents."
"I have always known there was something special at PV Ballet. My daughter has been dancing with Miss Dawn for 10+ years. Dawn has been an integral part of my daughter’s upbringing, and one I am so thankful for. Dawn teaches more than dance. She teaches grace, respect and helps each ballerina identify her gifts/talents and overcome challenges. We’ve had both! Growing up in the PV Ballet, my daughter has developed a deep sense of self respect, as well as respect for the ballet and one another. PV Ballet has given my daughter the experience of dancing alongside much better & older dancers, improving her own dance technique as well as providing wonderful role models. I love that since Anne was 6, she has had a group of lovely high school girls to call “friends!” Miss Dawn’s ballerinas hold their heads high because they are confident in who they are. Thank you for sharing your gifts with our children, Dawn."
