You Can Dance!

Join Breathe member and dance instructor, Amy Abbott, for a really fun hour where you'll learn a simple choreography set to contemporary music. While not an aerobics class, don't be surprised when you're out of breath after a few songs! Many dance styles will be incorporated (jazz, modern, Latin rhythm, swing) and this class welcomes true beginners (never having taken a dance class) as well as seasoned professionals.
Non-members - $20
WHAT TO WEAR: anything that you can comfortably move around in . . .yoga pants are fine and jeans are even okay. Wear comfortable soft-soled shoes. Sneakers aren't ideal and neither are bare feet, but you do you. :)
Amy has been a dancer her entire life, starting out at an early age with jazz, tap, ballet and modern dance. She discovered partner dancing in high school and trained in ballroom dance at the Ohio State University. After a study abroad trip to Spain and working in Mexico City, she quickly fell in love with Latin dances. Amy joined the salsa performance team, Dynamix, in 2006 and has performed, competed and taught salsa dance for the past 13 years.
Amy also teaches wedding dancing to couples, mothers/sons and fathers/daughters getting ready for their dances and has done so for the past ten years.
Here's what some folks who have attended Amy's classes have said:
"Amy has lead Salsa lessons at BEACON for Adult Literacy's annual Salsa Dance Fundraiser for two consecutive years. She is an incredible instructor. Everyone who attended loved the event and after an hour lesson we were all able to follow the basic Salsa steps. She makes dancing fun and attainable for everyone."
"Learning to dance Salsa has been a goal of mine for several years. My husband and I both have two left feet. Within an hour's time Amy had us dancing! She's an incredible instructor- easy to follow, super encouraging, and above all she makes it fun. If she can get us to dance, she can teach anyone!"
