“Since I own a dance studio and perform Samba on a regular basis, there is not a day that goes by that I do not practice my craft. They say that practice makes perfect so I guess I have to practice every day” says the Israeli with a Brazilian heart. Leading a healthy and active lifestyle is extremely important for Daiana.
As a dance and theatre teacher, she wants to show her students the importance and the benefits of being physically active every day. “Not only does it help you stay fit and healthy but it is also great for your mental state. For me, dance equals Happiness! It is the time where I can be free and let myself go with no inhibitions”. Daiana goal is to continue to educate people, especially children, about the importance of staying active and leading a healthy lifestyle.
