Born in San Francisco to an Irish-Italian working-class family, Dana DeSimone studied a variety of folk-dance styles: Greek, Balkan, clogging, salsa, merengue, country-western, and even belly dancing. He traveled to Southern Appalachia several times to study clogging, and served as artistic director for a local clogging group called the Cornmashers.
