Derek Cronin

Fun and Easy are two of the best ways used to describe my teaching style, whether you are brand new to the dance floor or your hair color matches your dance level (wink wink).

My name is Derek Cronin, although some of you may know me simply as, “The only guy Taller than Jason”.  I am thrilled and honored to officially be joining the fantastic lineup of dance instructors here at the Asheville Ballroom.  Please take a moment to say hello and let me know how I can help you on or off the dance floor!

Derek Cronin has been dancing for 16 years, spending the last 9 teaching small groups and private lessons professionally.  Prior to moving down to Asheville in 2007, Derek was the Dance Director at the Northville Arthur Murray studio in his home state of Michigan, specializing in American Smooth and Rhythm.

Derek will be celebrating his 6th wedding anniversary with his beautiful bride, Bronwyn,
who have the joy and privilege of raising their wonderful daughter, Aria.
