Elan Dance Est.

This month has been all about planning and early preparation at the Elan headquarters and when it comes to lending a hand, this lady is never shy to put her hand up to help. Oh, and she can also shake it like a salt shaker! Please help us to congratulate our September Dancer of the Month, Amber Mills! Amber always had the instinct to move as a child and her goal to lose some baby weight was finally the kick in the backside to start taking Zumba classes five years ago. A few months later, through encouragement by her wonderful instructor, she began running her own Zumba classes. Amber had little understanding of different dance genres and learnt with her students in many ways. One of those genres happened to be Dancehall and Elan’s Dancehall class was highly recommended to her. Finally she plucked up the courage to turn up! She felt welcomed and included (even as a rookie, mature-age student), adding that there is no ego in class and there’s an unspoken magical unity about the room. She’s even had the pleasure of being involved in performance opportunities. If you’re unsure, walk through the doors with an open heart and let the teachers show you that no matter what’s happening in your life, it’s ok to dance. Amber says she’s grateful to everyone who has helped make dance a part of her life. “If your soul calls you, listen. You don’t have to be the best or start young. Just go.” It has been a honour to have this amazing mummy grace our family with her enthusiasm and we love watching her grow. Congratulations! 🎉🎉🎉
