Being of Hispanic descent, Ana grew up dancing to the Latin rhythm and music, Cumbias, in particular. As a child, she watched Dancing With the Stars and immediately fell in love with ballroom dancing but it wasn’t until her senior year of high school that she decided to pursue ballroom. Being a quick learner and having a natural sense of rhythm, it didn’t take long for her to flourish on the dance floor. After a couple of years of training at a local valley studio, she decided to pursue a career with the Arthur Murray Raleigh studio and has been there ever since. Ana is driven by her passion for the tremendous positive impact that dance has had in her life and aspires to share the power of dance with her students.
