She continues to teach many of the ballet, tap, jazz, and modern/lyrical classes, in addition to being a Mom to her two children, Gabby and Matty (ages 14 and 11). She grew up in Newton and attended Peirce Elementary School, Day Junior High, and Newton North High School.

Miss Deb continues to take dance classes from master teachers and choreographers, including Travis Wall, Tyce Diorio, Cris Judd, Mia Michaels, Brian Friedman, Sonya Tayeh, Mandy Moore, Finish Jhung and Debbie Dee. In 2014, she was selected by the Pulse Convention faculty (Brian Friedman, Tyce Diorio, Gil Duldadao, Cris Judd and Laurieann Gibson) to receive a full scholarship to attend their summer Dance Teacher Convention in New York City!

Miss Samatha and her husband, Josh, also just welcomed their first baby, Oliver Henry, the day after the 2018 recital!
Miss Deb is so very proud to have such an experienced, caring, and professional group of dance teachers working alongside her at All That Jazz Dance Studio in Newton. For the first several years, she taught every single dance class herself at the dance school. Twenty one years later, these remarkable role models combine to teach ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, pointe, musical theater, modern, lyrical, creative movement, pre-ballet/tap, fairy princess and toddler dance classes to so many lucky children in Newton!

A current member of Static Noyze and CONcept ARTists Dance Companies, she also teaches at several dance studios in MA and has been a guest master teacher at local colleges and private schools. Firmly into her second decade of teaching at All That Jazz, Miss Heather has become an integral part of all of her students lives, not to mention their dance education.
Miss Erin Janiszewski- Miss Erin is entering her fifth year at All That Jazz. Miss Erin earned her degree in Dance Performance from Ball State University before spending a year performing in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean Islands while with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. She has been teaching at dance studios and camps throughout her native Indiana and locally in Massachusetts. All of Miss Erin's students just adore her sweet, caring and fun nature!
The benefits of attending dance conventions every year are enormous. Our students at All That Jazz Dance Studio in Newton are able to branch out and learn from other professional teachers, but they are doing so in a non-competitive, non-judgemental environment. These conventions are a highlight every year for all of the participating dancers.
All That Jazz has attended the Pulse Convention in 2014, Excel in Motion Conventions in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and ASH Convention in 2018. All of our dancers have had so much fun learning from such world renowned choreographers and teachers like Tyce Diorio from So You Think You Can Dance, Lane Napper from Victorious and Desmond Richardson from Alvin Ailey! The students were also thrilled to be taking class from SYTCD favorites, such as Lauren Froderman, Cyrus, Alex Wong and D-Trix. We are especially proud of our students who won High Honors from the Excel in Motion Convention, quite the accomplishment out of so many local dance studios and talented children!
The Pulse Convention will be open to all students over the age of 7. More information will be available in the fall.
