Joanna began her professional dance career in Portland, Oregon in 1994. She trained and worked at local independent dance studios, as well as Arthur Murray, an international chain of studios. She also trained with numerous professional dance coaches, attended workshops, took part in exhibition shows and taught for Princess Cruise Lines. After a lot of traveling and teaching at sea, she opened her own dance studio, back in the Pacific Northwest.

After the studio closed, Joanna's love for everything Latin, led her to the Caribbean. She made the island of Puerto Rico her new home and immersed herself in its beauty, culture, music and of course - dance! It was a dream come true and that adventure, prepared her to relocate to sunny Palm Springs, CA, where she could share her passion for dance with others in the desert! Since moving to the Coachella Valley, she opened another dance studio and offered both group classes and private lessons. Unfortunately, the studio recently closed.

Joanna has choreographed and performed routines with local celebrities in various charity dance events, such as "Dancing with the Desert Stars", "Dancing with Our Stars", and "Dancing with the Palm Springs Stars". She starred in Burlesque shows, taught classes at private parties, corporate events and dance conventions. Currently, she offers private dance lessons at $100 per hour (for a single person or a couple) at the client's preferred location - from Palm Springs to Indio. Quality instruction in the following dances: Cha-Cha-Cha, East Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Hustle, Mambo, Merengue, Nightclub Two-Step, Rumba, Salsa, Tango, Waltz, and Wedding Dance Routines. Shall we dance?
