Don’t love the gym scene? We feel ya. Slip out of your gym clothes and into something polyester, because Disco-Fit is here! Disco-Fit is a Viscount original dance fitness class that uses Disco line dance routines to help you meet your fitness needs while keeping your love of dance and camaraderie at the front of the line. We aren’t dancing to YMCA here. We’ve got lesser known, but totally live disco jams that will get you warmed up, stretched out, danced up, and cooled down. Yoga pants? Boooooo 😉 Bell-bottoms, platforms, wrap dresses and rompers encouraged. No pointed fingers here – just on point Boogie, great music, and outfits that will NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE!
Preregistration is required. Email or call the Friendly House Front Desk to register: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-228-4391.
Instructor: Sarah Riddle
Sarah Riddle has been dancing, teaching, and performing Latin dances since 1997. Her lifelong training in Ballet, Contemporary, Modern, Cabaret, and Jazz, have deeply influenced her style of Latin dance, teaching, and choreography. A former member and co-director of Portland’s first Salsa dance company, Sabor Latino, and one of Portland’s early Salsa pioneers, Sarah has studied, performed, choreographed, and taught all over the world. Her training in Caribbean based social dances is vast (LA style Salsa, Puerto Rican, Columbian, Casino, Afro-Cuban, NY Salsa on ‘2’, Classic Mambo, Forro, Kizomba, Boogaloo, Plena, Bomba, and even Samba) making her approach to dancing and teaching not only well researched, but thorough. Sarah is a former PCC faculty member in the Humanities department teaching World Dance: History of Salsa, so if you have an interest in the history of Salsa, she loves to talk about it! Her classes are upbeat, fun, sometimes analytical, and full of dancing (not just demo). She applies a no-scold policy to all of her classes, so don’t be afraid to make mistakes 😉 She also spent 10 years as an early childhood educator, so you can be sure that she will cover all styles of learning in her approach to teaching, and with supernatural patience.
