"The important thing is creating an environment where everyone involved feels a sense of belonging, support for one another, and having a shared experience."
Hi, I'm Dena
Dena DiGiacinto, a graduate of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, has performed everywhere from Europe to Asia to Broadway. She has worked with legends such as Hal Prince and Marvin Hamlisch, as well as TONY award winning and nominated artists such as Baayork Lee and Marcia Milgrom Dodge, to name a few. Her favorite productions include EVITA, Disney's 101 DALMATIANS, and the broadway revival of A CHORUS LINE. As a choreographer, Dena has collaborated on several productions at the John W. Engeman Theatre in New York. Aside from theatre, Dena also has a passion for helping people. She became a certified occupational therapy assistant, and used her education in that field combined with her background in theatre to co-create a musical theatre camp through Variety: The Children's Charity of St. Louis, which was designed for children and teens of all abilities. Dena is thrilled to bring inclusive theatre arts education programming to the Tucson community.
