Miss A Columnist

Dena Miller is the Dallas Editor for Miss A. She has been described by Style Network as a "Queen Bee". Formerly a glam rock scene Diva, Dena is now a Socialite on the Dallas philanthropy scene, specializing in Polo events that benefit women's and children's causes.

While never forgetting her small town roots from a Midwestern farming community in rural Missouri, she’s fit right in the “Big D” since coming here in 1984. After 11 years of promoting the music scene, hobnobbing with the most popular bands from coast to coast, she switched gears after meeting her husband at the first Polo match she ever attended. Always one for excitement, Polo became her new rock n roll.
With her marriage and new found passion for polo, came Philanthropy. Miller founded the Ladies Polo Auxiliary of Texas in 2005 with the goal of promoting the Sport of Kings in north Texas via charity events for causes that are close to her heart. To date the LPA has raised over $500,000 for causes such as domestic violence, children with serious medical needs, therapeutic horsemanship, the Polo Training Foundation, children’s advocacy and food drives for north Texas food Bank. When not working on her own events she is attending Charity luncheons and balls as well as volunteering at golf tournaments and Special Olympics events. She is a member of the USPA Equine Welfare committee and on Board of Dress For Succes Dallas.

Writing has been a lifetime passion of Dena’s. Besides working on a book that proceeds will benefit domestic violence organizations, and writing for two national polo magazines, is a frequent contributor to Dallas area publications, winning Best Contributor Award from Dallas Morning News Neighborsgo, she is co-authoring a book on the phenomenon of cyber bullying by adult women, referred to as Cyber Harrassment.

Dallas Acting Camp has two July sessions for kids ages 6-13. The fun filled three day camp will teach improvisational acting, television and commercial acting and the art of auditioning and meeting with agents. Session one has actor Dennis Haskins of Saved by the Bell as the celebrity guest while session two features Lorenzo Lamas. Adults will remember Lamas from Falcon Crest, an evening soap opera from the 80′s, while kids know his voice as Meap from Disney’s Phinias and Ferb.

Numerous studies have been done citing lower test scores when children return to the classroom after summer break. Students engaging in richer language environments and diverse activities consistently outscore children whose summer was spent mind-melting in front of a computer or TV screen.  Dallas Acting Camp fits the bill as an ideal option on many levels. Regardless of whether you see your little one as the next big star, or  just want to expose them to the arts… there is something here for everyone. The curriculum, ranging from Improvisation to On-Camera Training, from Auditioning Techniques to Script Memorization, and more is designed to empower your child to shine! Acting improves reading comprehension, and both verbal and non-verbal communication skills, as well as instilling self-control and discipline. Many of these activities also teach creativity in problem solving and build self esteem.
