In 2004, DeAnna met Megha, Director of Devyani Dance Company, and fell in love with American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance. She joined Devyani Dance Company’s professional troupe in the fall of 2004 and in 2007 she was in the very first group to receive Sister Studio and Teacher Certification outside of FatChance BellyDance®. For the past ten years, DeAnna has dedicated her dance career to receiving the highest level of training and establishing herself as a leading professional in the ATS® community. DeAnna is one of less than 20 Tribal Pura International Sister Studio Continuing Education instructors in the world and was one of the instructors accepted into the inaugural ATS® Advanced Teacher Training Certification.She’s had the pleasure of teaching and performing throughout the United States as well as India. She has appeared in FatChanceBellyDance® Tribal Basics Volume 7, Volume 9, in multiple performance DVDs and as an instructor in Indian Temple Poses and Yoga for ATS®.Her love of dance, movement and anatomy eventually led to her immersing herself in yoga study and teacher training. She became a registered Yoga Alliance Teacher (200hr RYT) in December 2013 with a focus on Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow.DeAnna’s continuous ATS® and yoga training creates a unique teaching style while remaining true to ATS® roots and tradition.
