Dana grew up on the Jersey Shore and moved to Florida after graduating from Purdue University. She has spent the past 11 years enjoying the warm South Florida weather and laid back lifestyle. Dana was originally introduced to Barre by a friend in 2014 and immediately fell in love and was hooked. She not only saw almost instant results in her body, but she was drawn to the energy and camaraderie that the studio atmosphere provides. It wasn’t until Rita opened up Bolder Barre that Dana and the rest of Martin County could enjoy the benefits of having a studio in their own backyard! Her enthusiasm for the exercise inspired her to become a certified Barre instructor in 2017. Barre not only changed the way Dana approached exercise, but helped her connect with her body on a much deeper level, finding both physical and mental balance, increased self confidence, and strength from within. This deeper connection has helped her to focus on greater love and attention for her body, mind, and soul. Dana desires to help others reach their lifestyle goals through physical activity and strives to create fun yet challenging classes for her students.
