2016 pro: Jana Smith
Jana Smith reluctantly attended her first ballroom lesson fourteen years ago. Little did she know it would quickly become one of her greatest passions. Within a few years her desire to keep improving her skills led her to begin traveling regularly to California for training with some of the country’s most respected and prestigious professionals. She enjoyed several years of competing as a top level amateur throughout the country, culminating in winning the U.S. Pro/Am Open to the World Standard title in 2011. Jana is the owner of Centered Movement LLC (www.centeredmovement.net), specializing in ballroom and certified equipment-based Pilates instruction.
