DeAnna discovered American Tribal Style® belly dance in 2004 and was so captivated she immediately devoted herself to classes, self-study and private lessons. Under the direction of Megha, she joined Devyani Dance Company’s professional troupe in the fall of the same year. In 2007 she received General Skills and Teacher Training certifications. Her continued devotion to the intricacies of ATS® led her on a path to yoga. She began connecting aspects of her yoga practice with many elements of ATS®. Dedicated to continuous improvement in both dance and teaching technique, DeAnna immersed herself into yoga training and in 2013 became a registered Yoga Alliance Teacher (200hr RYT) and in 2015 she was accepted and graduated from the first ATS® Advanced Teacher Training.
DeAnna’s classes and workshops offer her students an exciting and unique experience that not only improves technique, but also teaches how to connect with their dance on a more profound level by incorporating aspects of mind, body and spirit. DeAnna is honored to be a FatChanceBellyDance® Sister Studio Continuing Education Instructor.
