Amy Torseth Teelin
"Miss Amy"

​​Artistic Director & Owner

 

Amy Torseth Teelin attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, majoring in dance. She opened her first studio, Dance Unlimited, in Baraboo, Wi in 1989. In addition to teaching privately, she has a strong personal commitment to promoting creative self-expression through choreographing for the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County, Baraboo Theater Guild, and Baraboo High School musical and Pops Concert productions for over two decades. In 2000, she expanded Dance Unlimited into the BRAVO Center, offering the community a more comprehensive list of classes and mini-sessions, including yoga, Pilates, B-Fit and Zumba classes. With over 35 years of experience, she still loves teaching, and prides herself on providing her students a safe, nurturing, and fun environment - a quality dance experience where you "take your art seriously, but not yourself."
