Adrianne Arena-Jacobs

Adrianne Arena-Jacobs began dancing at the age of three and immediately fell in love with the art of dance. She danced through her school years and became an assistant instructor at Ronald Matty’s when she was 15. Adrianne continued her training after high school and earned her degree in dance at Point Park University. She then moved to New York City to follow her dream and was fortunate to have been able to work in the field that she loved. She went on to perform, choreograph and teach both national and international companies. After working in New York, Europe, performing on cruise lines, and touring with professional companies in various musicals and reviews, she returned to her home town and became founder of Arena’s Dance Centre. Later she expanded and incorporated musical theatre and founded Arena’s Dance Company. After working in New York, Europe, performing on cruise lines, and touring with professional companies in various musicals and reviews, she returned to her home town and opened her own studio. Adrianne is thrilled for the studio to be embarking on its 23rd season this year!
