2024 Dancer – DIANA CHAVES

Diana Chaves Specht was born in Cali, Colombia and has been a resident of Brevard County for almost 30 years. She left her native Colombia with her parents in the late 90’s during a time of the drug trafficking, kidnapping, and bombs for the safety of the United States.  

Before moving to the United States, she studied in a French school for more than 12 years where she developed an immense understanding and love for languages, culture, and travel.  Diana is a graduate of the University of Central Florida with a degree in World Languages and a minor in Mass Communications. During her summer and weekend job at the Kennedy Space Center, she met her husband, Billy Specht. They have been married for 20 years and have a teenage son named William. They share a passion for traveling, a love for animals, fitness, nature, and music.  For the last 20 years, Diana has worked as a Spanish and French teacher for Brevard Public Schools. She currently teaches at Titusville High School as the chair of the Foreign Languages Department, where she feels at home; and there’s a reason for that… Diana was an exchange student in 1998 at Titusville High School!  Many Space Coast businesses have used her image to promote their brands and products. Currently, she’s the brand ambassador for MedAsthetics Med Spa.  

Diana Chaves Specht is very excited to support the Best Buddies organization through her participation in Dancing for The Space Coast. She’s ready to give it all on the dance floor to support her cause!
