Dana began coaching at Gold Star in the winter of 2017. She was an accomplished Acro gymnast (the division of gymnastics that incorporates tumbling, dance and dynamic skills with partnering and stunting). Dana rose to Level 10, one step before our Olympic gymnasts, and won Nationals in 2013 and 2015. In 2013, she traveled to Sofia, Bulgaria, where she placed 7th in the Acro World Cup for her level. Such an incredible accomplishment, and all before graduating high school. Since retiring from Acro, Dana came to Gold Star to participate in our Teen Gymnastics classes. She has previously tutored children, making her a natural at coaching gymnastics. With her confident poise and sunny, encouraging demeanor, we are very excited to have her work with our beginner gymnasts.
