From Class to Community
BRAVO is more than a studio. We're a part of something bigger!
The BRAVO Center is more than just a dance and fitness studio, we're a thriving part of the Baraboo community!
Something that sets BRAVO apart is our commitment to support all mediums of art. In order to do so the BRAVO Center sponsors "Art Trips, BRAVO Style." Art trips have included traveling to BRAVO alumni college dance showcases, visiting Madison or Chicago for professional dance performances, going to a local productions "en masse" and more! BRAVO leads many opportunities to support and explore our dancer's interests!
Our BRAVO instructors have choreographed for the Baraboo High School's annual musical production through the BHS music department. BRAVO instructors have choreographed BHS's musicals and they always delight in the opportunity to work with high schoolers both new and known to the music department. Each year our teachers are asked to choreograph for BHS musicals, madrigals, poms/dance team, and pops concerts. Our teachers have also been seen throughout the community offering fitness classes, choreographing for Baraboo Theater Guild and University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County theatre productions, the Baraboo Light Parade and more!
In an age where information is available instantly through the internet, the BRAVO Center strives to bring up-to-date and correct information regarding health and wellness, and particularly opportunities to exercise through group classes, to the community. Whether at the studio or around Wisconsin, Amy Torseth Teelin has made it her mission to make physical wellness easily accessible to all by inviting people to our dance, adult, and yoga classes. You may have seen BRAVO at: American Heart Association Meetings, CPR Classes, Elementary schools, or BHS. Miss Amy has always felt that physical movement is a vital part of wellness, and she shares that value with the physical education classes that she guest-teaches at.
BRAVO believes in performing for a purpose! What makes the BRAVO Center dancers so unique? Not only are they talented, but they are thoughtful. The BRAVO Center has been asked numerous times to perform a small show to benefit organizations and never once have we had a shortage of dancers willing and wanting to volunteer their time and talent. Previous Special Event Shows include: Hula Night at Wisconsin Dells nursing home, Show Preview at St. Clare Meadows in Baraboo, talent shows with various schools, Summerset Theatre, Choral Concert dances with UW-Baraboo/Sauk Co., and Al Ringling benefit shows. Through our BRAVO Buddies, Zumbathons, and our "Barkley Bank," we raise hundreds of dollars for local charities, humane societies, and more.
We put our personal money where our mouths are. In addition to supporting community art by choreographing and marketing productions, classes, and performing opportunities, the BRAVO Center also provides monetary support for benefit concerts and shows. "The greatest thing about art is that it is not only a means of self-expression, but it is also an undeniable gateway to a community of some of the most fascinating and creative people on the planet," Miss Amy says. "By supporting each other, the art community can further offer our neighbors more ways to find and create ourselves to be more curious and courageous individuals."
