Welcome to the website of Dawn Pratson—dancer, choreographer, educator, Dalcroze Eurhythmics specialist, chamber musician, tree-lover. My main instrument is the flute and I also play piano and sing. I love playing with, learning about, and discovering places where music and dance connect.

Dawn Pratson has an extensive, interdisciplinary background in music and dance education, performance and therapy. She earned her BA in music and dance from the University of Hartford/Hartt College of Music and her master’s degree in creative arts in therapy from Drexel University. She has her license in Dalcroze Eurhythmics and is certified in Orff-Schulwerk.
