Celebrity Couple


Betsy Callahan is a native Hoosier and a lifelong student of dance. She took her first lesson at seven and is still continuing to take dance lessons at the age of fifty-eight. She graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas with a bachelor’s degree in business and a minor in ballroom dance.
