Staff & Board

Board of Directors

ProArteDanza is completely indebted to a group of dedicated, passionate (and overworked) volunteers without whom, all would be lost:

Cathy Lace (chair) Joanna Ivey (co-founder) David Gilmour (treasurer) Susan Colbert Wright (secretary) Moze Mossanen (director) Al Nasturzio (director)

The Board acknowledges and appreciates the continued support and contribution from Krista Kerr, former chair.
