About

I’m Dana. I dance, I act, I teach, and I love all three tremendously. I dance for artists you might know, like Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber. I act in commercials (Amazon Prime, Verizon, Microsoft, TravelZoo) and I act in film and television – sometimes as myself and sometimes as Shrek (Nickelodeon/Disney/Dreamworks). Take my class on NYCDA or get to know me on morethanmovestv.com – more below.

Dana’s feature in Dance Magazine declares her “Anything But A Backup Dancer”.  Since her second world tour with Justin Timberlake, she continues to work in commercials, music videos, TV, award shows, and movies (Amazon Prime,Verizon, Bud Lite, Two and a Half Men, The Grammys SNL, Ellen, Dancing With the Stars, American Idol, Shrek 4, and Charlie Wilson’s War). You’ve seen her along side Justin Bieber, Hozier, Britney Spears, The Backstreet Boys, Kylie Minogue, Florence and the Machine and as a guest choreographer  for SYTYCD season 7.  Dana is one of the leading voices of her community, as Dancers’ Alliance Board member, and SAG/AFTRA Ambassador. She is a vivacious performer, teacher, choreographer, and even got GoPro’s attention for her 365 consecutive daily videos on Instagram (@danadaners).  Dana’s passion for dance and story telling illuminates everything she crosses from the worlds biggest stages to smallest cell phone screens.
