Teacher Spotlight: Miss Dina

Welcome to Miss Dina’s Virtual Dance Floor!

Miss Dina’s favorite Sophie Dance Atwater memory is her very first day, meeting her new students and families. Fast forward 2 years, and she’s still dancing her way into the very heart of our community, and she continues to foster a love of movement for dancers both big and small. While she grew up in snowy Connecticut, building snow-tunnels with her 5 brothers, her disposition is just as warm and welcoming as the California sunshine. These days at home, she is pursuing her Kinesiology studies as she works toward applying to grad school for her Physical Therapy doctorate. She’s also discovered how to make her own candles and has built her own ballet barre to keep her dancing at home.

She’s thrilled to be sharing some of her Top 3 picks for Children’s Books, Movies, and Music below! We hope you and your dancer enjoy!
