I have known Dina for over 25 years; her creativity and inspiration is in everything she does. She inspires my dance students to acheive new goals and strength with their bodies. When I turned 50 I fell into that trap of feeling old, weak and unable to turn around my mood. She challenged me to take her then brand new boot camp. Fear was certainly the word to describe my first thoughts but with her encouragement I did it and each week became stronger, not just physically but emotionally. It was truly a turning point for the second half of my life!
