A note from Deanna

I’m so excited you are interested in Heart and Soul.  I am equally excited to share my great love of gymnastics, dance, and fitness. It has been my dream to share that love with children of all ages and abilities. I have created a place to dance, flip, and exercise, where the energy is high and the atmosphere is all about family. I have grown up putting my heart and soul into my many pursuits. God has richly blessed me through gymnastics, school, and family. I am deeply moved to share His gift and passion for life with your children.  There are no limits when you give your Heart and Soul.

Deanna’s Background

Deanna Graham is a born and raised Tucsonan who fell in love with gymnastics at a very young age. She was introduced to gymnastics by her mother at the age of 4 and never looked back. Deanna attended Tanque Verde Elementary and Desert Christian Middle School. In 2008, she graduated from Desert Christian High School and became the first Division I scholarship recipient in the school’s history.

Although recruited by many universities, Deanna has been a Wildcat with all her “Heart and Soul” since the age of seven. She accepted a full ride gymnastics scholarship to the University of Arizona competing for the Gymcats from 2008-2012.   She had a wonderful experience fulfilling her dreams at the University of Arizona and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a minor in Sports Marketing.  She was named Pac 10 gymnast of the week 3 times throughout her career and was the recipient of Arizona’s Jim Gault award in 2010.  In 2011 she qualified in the All Around for the NCAA Championships and was named 1st Team Pac 10 All Conference in the ALL Around in 2010 and 2011. Deanna has 20 years of gymnastics experience both as a coach and a gymnast. She is a USGA certified recreational coach and CPR certified. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact Deanna Graham personally.
