Meet Our Teachers
Amy Torseth Teelin
Artistic Director, Founder & Lead Instructor
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."
Brienna Killgallon has two Associate of Arts- Fine Arts [AAFA], one in theatre and the second in dance. Brienna grew up in Peoria, Arizona where she performed and choreographed various regional theater productions and danced competitively until college. She moved to Florida where she worked in entertainment at Walt Disney World and production events at Universal Studios Orlando. She moved to Baraboo in fall of 2017, where she became part of the Baraboo Theater Guild [BTG] and met Miss Amy. She has been teaching at BRAVO since winter of 2018, and has loved every second of it! Brienna specializes in ballet, contemporary/lyrical, musical theatre and is recognized in unarmed stage combat by the Society of American Fight Directors [SAFD].
Andrea Henry teaches a variety of styles from pointe, ballet, tap, jazz and contemporary.
Kari Langkamp grew up in Poynette and began dancing at age 3 in Portage and then with Penny Imray in Portage & Baraboo through high school. She returned to dancing in 2008 by teaching dance fitness classes like Zumba and WERQ and that led her to Ms. Amy. She started with BRAVO in 2017 and loves getting to share in our creative students' dance journeys.
Kristen Reynoso grew up in the Reedsburg area and began her dance training with Penny Imray and Dancers Unlimited before deciding to study ballet more intensely in Spring Green and at Ballet Madison. She studied for two years at Interlochen Arts Academy followed by moving to New York City, studying at the Joffrey Ballet School. Kristen is very excited to be back teaching at the BRAVO Center and thankful for the opportunity to work with the area's talented children!
Michael Etzweiler has studied ballet, jazz, tap, and theatre dance. After graduating with a BFA and honors from UW-Stevens Point, Michael began travelling with regional and national tours (including Cats, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Guys and Dolls). Michael then returned home to Baraboo, he began teaching tap and musical theatre classes at the BRAVO Center. He currently resides in Wautoma and is the high school choral director at Wild Rose School District.

The BRAVO Center follows the Baraboo School District when it comes to canceling class due to Snow Days.
If there is a snow day or early release from school due to weather, there will be no dance classes that evening. Late starts to school will not affect our dance schedule, and classes will continue as normal.
We understand not all our dancers are part of the Baraboo School District, so if it is unsafe in your area to drive or travel, please take caution and stay home. The BRAVO Center will also announce any snow day class cancelations via email and class BAND pages.
Face Masks Optional
The BRAVO Center will continue to require all of our COVID precautions, including optional mask-wear and encouraged social distancing.
Families are asked to keep their dancers home if they are feeling ill.
Thank you for putting your BRAVO family first- We're in this together!
