The Knot Review
REAL comments by REAL students in REAL classes.
"You infuse the room with your vitality. Your love of teaching us old folks how we can enjoy something we thought had passed us by permeates the room giving everyone the feeling they, too, can succeed. Thank you for sharing your gifts!"
- Kevin & Deb D.
"Deanna clearly has been enthusiastically sharing her passion and purpose for years as she provided succinct quality training in a playful environment. My husband and I laughed, finding joy in music and dance. Thank you for giving us something to giggle about and enjoy with friends! "Oooooh Baby!" - Pam & John B."
"The instructor was extremely patient and capable. She took care to make everyone feel comfortable and presented everything in a logical order. Deanna was the best instructor I have ever had in community ed!" - Pat B.
"You are a wonderful dance teacher, you make learning fun. We thoroughly enjoyed your sense of humor, your patience and your kindness towards all of us in the class." - Caron & Tom F.
"When Deb and I did the hustle with our handful of moves, the dance floor cleared and I felt like John Travolta! It was great fun. We've been able to dance at three weddings now since our lessons with you and it has been very gratifying!
Thanks!" - Steven S.

About the Instructor & Founders
Owner / Instructor
Deanna follows in the footsteps of her parents, the renowned Minnesota dance instructors Dean and Mary Constantine. Deanna grew up helping in the family business and spent much of her childhood training in ballroom dancing and classical ballet. She shares her passion for dance by conducting group classes and private lessons in communities throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs. She contracts with park & recreation and community education programs to make learning to dance more accessible and affordable to her students. She strives to make classes fun and easy so all her students experience success! She holds a bachelors degree in elementary education from the University of MN. Whenever possible she likes to escape the cold winters to visit her 3 young adult children who live in warmer places!
Dean and Mary Constantine
Icons of the local dance scene since the 1950s, Dean & Mary provided dance instruction to Minnesotans for nearly 60 years! They shared their talents with "well over 100,000 students," as Dean often cited. They had the original idea of bringing the studio to the students rather than the students to the studio. They traveled all around the metro, contracting with community education, park and recreation, country clubs, health clubs, businesses, and even neighborhood home groups. Their tradition continues to this day with their daughter, Deanna, carrying on the family legacy. Mary now lives with another daughter in California. Dean passed away on September 23, 2016 at the age of 86. Photo: Dean and Mary received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" presented to them by USA Dance Minnesota in Sept. 2006.
