Teaching all age and levels and many disciplines, everyday :)

Dena is the owner and director of DK Dance Studio and has been teaching for 20 years. She grew up in Webster and always dreamed of having a dance studio of her own! She grew up dancing, training and participating in competitions regionally and nationally, while also starting to teach at a young age. She continued her dance education in College at the University at Buffalo where she graduated with a BA in Dance. She was fortunate to teach dance classes at the university while furthering her education with her MA at the University at Buffalo, which she obtained in 2004 (just before opening DK Dance Studio). Her concentration was dance and early childhood development.

Dena has choreographed for Thomas High Schools musicals, Pippin, Brigadoon and Bye Bye Birdie, as well as Willink Middle Schools Rockin Tale of Snow White.

Dena loves teaching kids of all ages, especially the young children! She is always so excited and willing to share her passion of dance with all of her students!
