Norwich Dance Teacher Sentenced for Sexually Abusing Boys
A former Chenango County dance teacher will register as a sex offender and spend ten years in prison and ten years post-release supervision. 29 year old Travis St. Denny was sentenced September 27.
St. Denny had been a dance teacher at the Perkins School of the Arts in Norwich where he was accused of sexually abusing several boys.
St. Denny pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal sexual act and one count of promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child. All three counts are felonies.
Prosecutors say once one boy came forward, others reported inappropriate actions.
There could be additional charges in the future for St. Denny under allegations of abuse in other areas of Chenango County.
