Greetings! My name is Crystal Bain. I am thrilled to be here at Sorensen because not only do I get to teach the fifth grade but I also get to teach my first love, dance. I feel very privileged to be able to be a part of the Sorensen family and look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.
I grew up here in Coeur d’Alene. After graduating from Coeur d’Alene High School, Go Viks!, I went on to get two bachelors from the University of Idaho. The first being in Dance and the second in Education. I have been teaching dance for over ten years now, from Hip Hop and Jazz to Swing dancing with all ages. On top of teaching, I have choreographed for many local theater companies, like Moscow Art Theater Too and North Idaho College. I look forward to infusing my love of dance into our fifth grade curriculum.
When I am not at school, I am in the outdoors with my husband, Kent, and my kids, Elli & Kam. If we aren’t at a park playing or out on a walk we are most likely reading books or watching movies. We love to garden, ride bikes, raft, create art and camp.
I look forward to making great memories this year with everyone. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions or concerns.
