Jana Oelbaum began as a Teaching Artist with Dancing Classrooms NY in 2013 and joined DCLI in the same capacity the following year. She holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a masters degree in mathematics education 7-12. Her passion is competitive ballroom dancing. Jana is a gold level pro-am champion and specializes in International Standard, performing the waltz, tango, Viennese waltz, foxtrot, and quickstep. After seeing the documentary “Mad Hot Ballroom” about 100 times, she decided it was time to get involved with Dancing Classrooms and combine her love of dance with her love of working with children into one amazing job. She wholeheartedly believes in the mission of Dancing Classrooms and couldn’t be happier!
