Natalie Crandall

Natalie Crandall was an amateur competitive ballroom dancer for 16 years before making the leap to becoming a professional in 2017. Throughout her career as a
Pro/Am student, Natalie traveled the United States as well as internationally to achieve titles at the highest level and become a decorated champion. She has won multiple World and National titles as a Pro/Am student and in 2017 she became the first ever Blackpool British Open Pro/Am American Smooth Champion.

Natalie has also had experience with television production after performing an honor dance for PBS America’s Ballroom Challenge as well as appearing on So You
Think You Can Dance LA Auditions.

In 2017, Natalie began her professional career with partner Oleksiy Pigotskyy at the United States Dancesport Championships. In their first year of dancing together they became Ohio Star Ball Rising Star Smooth Champions, World Rhythm Finalists and in September 2018, after one year of dancing together they became the 2018 United States Open Professional American Style 9-Dance Champions. The same year they also became National Professional Rising Star Rhythm Champions and National Professional Rising Star Smooth Champions.

In 2018 Natalie Crandall along with her past Pro/Am teacher Decho Kraev also began Desert Sol Dancesport, a one day competition held in Tucson, Arizona.

Natalie’s passion for ballroom dancing started at age 6 and it has only grown since. She is also a certified spin instructor and yoga instructor and utilizes her fitness
career as a way to improve the understanding of movement and physical performance not only for herself but for her students as well.

Natalie is continuously seeking out new and unique ways to push the industry forward and is excited to make her mark as a professional dancer, fitness instructor and competition owner/organizer.
