the favorite (and only) son of a Caterer mother
and Physician father, Dan Weltner had entertaining
down to a science. At sixteen, this Columbus,
Ohio native assisted his mother, Elizabeth in
planning and catering some of the
area’s grandest events.
When Dan went away to Miami University, where he studied Theater and Dance, he spent his summers back with Elizabeth in pursuit of the perfect party. And with the exception of one head waiter who ended up with 30 flaming cherries jubilee on his lap (Dan’s grip wasn’t as strong as his dance step) a wonderful time was had by all.
After college, Dan pursued his other passion and moved to Chicago where he taught and performed dance. In 1989, he was invited to join a professional modern dance company in New York–started touring the world–and never looked back.
Today, Dan pursues his vocation in film and follows his heart. He teaches dance–and movement for actors at the acclaimed Tisch Drama Department at NYU.
And during every other hour of the day, he’s with his partner, Jayson creating awe-inspiring baked goods and proving to each and every customer who comes his way–that Dan Weltner really does have entertaining down to a science.
