Abraham Sannoh,

Owner & Instructor

My name is Abraham (Abe) Sannoh, owner of Crown Dance Studio, and my vision is to empower people from all walks of life to
discover their purpose and accomplish their dreams.

I took ownership of Crown Dance Studio in 2014, with the mission of making the studio an affordable dancing home for everybody,
no matter one’s economic circumstance.

Ballroom dancing enhanced my strong work ethic, drive,
and dedication that I apply in all aspects of my life.
I wish for others to try ballroom dancing, so they too
can experience firsthand all the benefits it offers.

I have over 24 years of dance experience: 14 years of teaching experience and 11 years of competitive dance experience.
From all of my years competing in various dance competitions around the world, I am well known for my skills in American Rhythm & Smooth Dances. From my extensive dance career, I have acquired so much knowledge that I wish to share with others.

My favorite part of being an instructor is helping students and staff develop their dancing as they transform into better versions of themselves. No matter your current dance experience level, my warm and friendly personality will make learning
to dance easy, fun and exciting.

You do not have to let your past circumstances define you.
You have the power to make a decision to create
the change you need to have the life you want.
Make the decision to visit Crown Dance Studio TODAY! 🙂
