Instructor: Diana Miller

Diana rediscovered her childhood love of dance fourteen years ago after taking an introductory ballroom class at her local YMCA.  She continued her ballroom instruction with Ed Godby-Schwab, assisting with classes and eventually forming a partnership with him as Let’s Dance-Indy.  As an independent instructor, Diana offers both group and private lessons at The Dance Center in Lapel, the Fishers YMCA, Noblesville Parks, the Anderson Young Ballet Theater and various other local venues and dance clubs around Indy.  She particularly enjoys teaching new dancers and helping them discover their own passion for dance.
This is her eighth year participating in the Anderson Paramount Theatre’s "Dancing Like the Stars" fundraising event, where she was a past recipient of both the Judges' Choice and People's Choice Awards. For the past six years, Diana has also participated in the Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County "Dancing With Our Stars" fundraiser, where she was awarded the People's Choice and Runners-Up Judges' Choice Awards with her past partners.
