TESTIMONIALS
 
Fame Performing Arts Camp is the best camp my daughter has attended.
Donna came to Oaks Christian School with a vision. 
In one week she built a dance studio and Oaks Christian had a full running dance program.
We are very appreciative that our daughter can be involved in such a high quality program at school.
Donna is a great director!!

 "DONNA MAGNANI-CONVERTINO IS THE CONSUMMATE DANCE EDUCATOR WHO POSSESSES A TRUE PASSION FOR THE ARTS! SHE BEGAN STUDYING WITH ME IN APPROXIMATELY 1980 AND HAS HAD AN EXCELLENT CAREER AS A PERFORMER AND EDUCATOR.  SHE IS AN EXCELLENT ADMINISTRATOR WHO WORKS WELL WITH OTHERS AND IS AN OUTSTANDING DEDICATED LEADER.

AS A TEACHER DONNA IS VERY GOOD WITH CHILDREN AS WELL AS ADULTS OFFERING CLASSIC, HIGH ENERGY, CONTEMPORARY DANCE THAT IS FUN, YET TECHNICALLY BASED.   SHE HAS A FAST JAZZ STYLE THAT IS SOMETIMES MIXED WITH A TWIST OF LYRICAL.  DONNA ALSO HAS A LONG TIME BACKGROUND IN FITNESS.

IN CLOSING I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT DONNA IS AN ESPECIALLY CONSCIENTIOUS AND HONEST PERSON WHO WOULD CERTAINLY BE AN ASSET TO ANY PROGRAM".

It is indeed my honor to recommend Donna to you. She sought us out to help implement the drama program
at J Serra Catholic High School and we quickly caught the spirit and energy of her work with the youth. Donna
is most creative and communicates her ideas clearly and with an infectious enthusiasm that brings everyone
up a level when they work with her.
 
 
One of our volunteers, Corey Kase, helped with set design and building for productions in the small workspace
at J Serra and when Donna approached us to host her students at Camino Real Playhouse in their production of
Bye Bye Birdie, we enthusiastically said “Yes!”
 
 
We had a set planned for our production of Chicago and Donna used that design to block and produce her
show. The week before her show opened, she brought in a respectful, well trained and very enthusiastic cast
and crew covering all the bases including light design and operation, sound, backstage crew, front of house
crew and most importantly a very talented and well rehearsed cast for a fun musical.
 
 
She filled our 88 seat theatre at least 8 times for Bye Bye Birdie and it was clear from the audience reception
that Donna was respected and loved by the parents and friends as well as her students.
 
 
We wish Donna all the best success in her career.
