• Joann Gallagher, President

    Joann discovered Florida Arts & Dance Company while exploring downtown Stuart in 2005 and saw an ad for The Nutcracker at the Lyric Theatre.  She and her daughter, Lilley, attended the performance and by the Spring, Lilley was taking classes at FADC.  Always a dedicated parent volunteer, she assumed the role as FADC Board President in 2012.
    Her experience in the hospitality industry is diverse and extensive, holding key management roles for a number of prestigious Long Island golf and tennis clubs and the General Manager position for Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southhampton, NY.
    Her love for arts and strong belief in supporting and empowering youth fuels her work with FADC.  Joann believes  that all children, who have the desire to dance should have that opportunity, regardless of their ability or financial restrictions.
    Joann enjoys networking in the community, sharing the FADC mission to enhance cultural awareness and promoting the good work of FADC students and staff.
