Dana Theil

Director & Teacher


Dana has loved to dance since she was a child. As long as she can remember, she was putting dance steps together to create dances/performances and always wanted to be a choreographer. Dana has trained at Pennsport since the age of 12, but loves taking classes at other dance facilities & different teachers in New York and here in Philadelphia. Dana was the Choreographer/Director for the Philadelphia Kixx, Philadelphia Wings and USA SEVENS. She also worked for the Philadelphia 4th of July parade for a couple years which was super fun, but working with the Philadelphia Mummers has been one of the favorite jobs of her career. Although there have been many clubs that she has worked with throughout the years, she has the pleasure to still be working for Fralinger String Band, Avalon String Band, Uptown String Band, the Spartans NYB, the Shooters NYB (coming NYD 2023) and the Downtowners NYB (coming NYD 2023)!

The studio will always be where her heart is and where we, as a dance family, come together to put on the most amazing performances. PSOD!!!

Favorite PSOD Memory

“I can vividly remember bringing Riley into the studio in a car seat and having her sit in front of my class while I taught. Now she is a teacher and I am so proud!”
