Diana started swing dancing in Honolulu, during the summer of 2005, after a most successful 30 minute east coast lesson. The rest of that summer was consumed with lindy hop, balboa, and charleston workshops until she was forced to return to RPI in Troy, NY that fall. A year later, she started up the swing dance club at RPI and kept bouncing back and forth between the Honolulu and Albany dance scenes until graduating in 2007. Diana currently dances and teaches in Connecticut, focusing on connection and maintaining that particular degree of silliness required of lindy hoppers. She also DJ's and currently heads Hartford Underground. Diana travels often to dance weekends and competitions, continually learning and changing shirts between DJ breaks.
