Darcy Grabenstein is a freelance writer and poet who has had a lifelong love affair with dance. Her earliest dance memories are of her stereotypical ballet teacher, Mrs. DeMarko, frowning and banging a wooden staff on the dance floor for added emphasis. An avowed ballet school dropout, Darcy later was introduced to the genres of international and Israeli folk dance. She ran a weekly Israeli dance session and all-volunteer performing group in Orlando for a decade. More recently, she combined her interests in exercise and dance as a Zumba instructor throughout Bucks County, PA, and South Jersey, choreographing her own routines. And now, at thINKingDANCE, Darcy brings together her dual passions of writing and dance.
