Dana has always had a passion for the arts since she was young including singing, dancing (acro, jazz, ballet, tap, hip hop), playing piano, and even becoming a student conductor for over 400 children! However, her love for Ballroom and Latin dancing began at thirteen years old when she saw ballroom dancers on television. She saw how confident and beautiful the dancers looked and being a young teenager at the time, she aspired to be one of them. She has been committed to her passion of ballroom dancing ever since.
Dana has been with Fred Astaire Dance Studios for almost 10 years. She holds a degree in Psychology, which is a tremendous asset when working with people and delivering great customer service…something that she strives to give to everyone who walks in the studio doors!
Dana is currently a Fred Astaire certified Dance Director and a Fellow member of the Dance Board! She is a firm believer that dancing can change your life, relationships, and so much more! Her goals are to become a Fred Astaire Dance Studios Examiner on the National Dance Board and continue to develop herself as a competitive dancer, instructor, business woman and owner. Dana, along with her business partner Denise Buchner, have successfully owned the Manasquan location for over six years together! Dana is also a co-owner of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Princeton, NJ.
