“IT’S LIKE WALKING INTO A LITTLE COMMUNITY WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE AND THERE IS NO ANIMOSITY OR JUDGEMENT”
Jena Chang. Age 29. Member since 2013. Favourite classes Jazz and Jive.
“I joined Dance Dynamics in my last year of uni in 2013 studying to be an Osteopath, which was the kick I needed to get my fitness and health on track.
Since joining, I’ve accomplished so much thanks to the encouragement of the DD staff and members: returning to the challenge of dance classes (which took a break during my studies), coming out of my shell and performing in the annual concerts for the past few years; pushing myself to sit Urban and Latin Medal Exams up to Gold and Silver level respectively; and making a whole bunch of new friends with members and teachers! It really is a community and I love it!
As an Osteopath, I understand the importance of maintaining physical activity and good mental health. Good thing Dance Dynamics was there to influence both of these aspects of my life! Not only do I feel good when I leave, but I often forget any troubles of the day when I’m there. I also have DD to thank for providing me the light bulb moment I needed to pursue further learning in my Osteo practice! I have a strong background in exercise rehabilitation and clinical Pilates as a result, which I am super passionate about and I try my best to pass on that passion in the management of my patients and my friends!
Although my scheduling has changed a lot over the last 6 years and I’m not coming as often as I did at the start, I’m still feeling eager to come to class and thoroughly love the challenge of learning new and complicated choreography and having fun doing it with my DD friends. Thank you for providing me so much joy and happiness every week, DD!”
