Dana Wilson is a choreographer, performer, and movement coach who understands how to move real people. Her work is undeniably bright, refined and classic, yet bizarre with a healthy dose of HAPPY. Dana’s feature in Dance Magazine declares her “Anything But A Backup Dancer”. Her contribution as associate choreographer on the film In The Heights, her movement coaching for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis biopic, and her advocacy efforts as leadership of the Choreographers Guild all back that up.
While working in TV, Film, and alongside pop industry megastars, Dana also makes up one third of the wildly original and imaginative group “The Seaweed Sisters”. They celebrate humor, the unusual, and above all – play.
In the digital world, Dana got GoPro’s attention for her 365 consecutive daily videos on Instagram (@danadaners), and shortly after, established a relationship with 360 camera Ricoh Theta as a content creator and influencer. Her appetite for capturing and sharing is on par with her love of dance. Dana is constantly experimenting with new technologies and techniques (like 360 degree video capture and editing, VR, and Drones).
Dana has been teaching for over 15 years and she is the master mind (and master mover) behind Apple Top 100 Performing Arts Podcast: “Words That Move Me”. With her thoughtful and fresh voice, and a pension for moving people, Dana illuminates everything she crosses from the world’s biggest stages to smallest cell phone screens.
