Deanna Schwartz


She’s brash, she’s honest and she’s having the time of her life. Deanna Schwartz is 67 years old. In just the last six years she convinced herself to go to an audition, even though she had no dance or acting experience.

She got the job as a hip hop dancer for the New Jersey Nets, she’s been on countless local newscasts, she’s been on the national news and she’s been featured in a full-length movie that is now being converted into a Broadway play!

It’s all called, “Gotta Dance,” and it’s the result of the formation of a senior hip hop dance team formed by the New Jersey Nets of the NBA. The documentary has won major awards and brought major visibility to this incredible group of people over the age of 55 who are smashing stereotypes, rewriting the rules of age and living life to the fullest.
