Alana Deitch has been dancing almost since she could walk. In 2013, she graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in Dance and a B.S. in Exercise Science. Since graduating, she has continued her training through involvement in local dance communities in Austin and now Chicago as well as briefly overseas. Throughout college she worked as a nanny for a child with cerebral palsy, accompanying him to many physical/occupational/speech therapy sessions and helping to implement them at home. After graduating, she spent five months volunteering as a physical therapy technician in a pediatric physical therapy clinic. This is Alana's first time combining her two passions of dance and helping people of all abilities.
