Crystal Auclair started as a gymnast in her early days, and not until she met Matt Auclair at 15 did she start doing West Coast Swing (WCS).
Crystal was a natural and picked up quickly, and was soon teaching with Matt Auclair.
She formed her early partnerships and started competing and quickly flew through the ranks of WCS.
She competed at the US Open with Matt in 2002, just two years after beginning to dance WCS. Since then, she has continued to teach and compete throughout the country, and also internationally.
