Meet our Instructors

Director & Choreographer

Corrie Whittington

Corrie began her dance training at the age of 3.5 at Deanna’s School of Dance. While at Deanna’s Corrie showed a love and excellence in tap and was asked to join the Senior Tap Class at age 7. During her dance career Corrie completed many years of competitions performing in solos, duets, and group dances. She won many awards and learned under the direction of several award-winning choreographers. Corrie began teaching her own classes at age 16. Now with over 25 years of teaching, including Deanna’s School of Dance, Dance Etc, and RM Productions, Corrie is fulfilling a long-time dream of opening her own studio.

Corrie’s goal with CW Dance Company is to share the love of dance with her students, while providing quality dance education at the same time. Corrie believes that dance is something that should be shared with everyone young and old alike. Corrie believes that people of all abilities should have the opportunity to dance, and inclusion is important at every age. She had always specialized in the littlest dancers even though she enjoys teaching all ages. In addition to regular classes, Corrie teaches competition teams, solos, and duets and has been recognized with many awards.

When Corrie isn’t at dance, she is a stay-at-home mom and caretaker for her daughter who has cerebral palsy. Corrie and her Husband, Heath, live in Dunbar, with their two daughters, Layla and Abigail and 3 dogs, Toby, Moose and Stormi.
