Jeremy has committed himself to helping others’ growth and development. He does this working at a boys group home. There he uses groups, therapy, and activities to help young men express themselves in healthy ways and cope with life’s challenges. He has also taught English in Appleton’s Newcomer Program where he fostered a safe environment for language exploration with refugees and immigrants. Recently he discovered dance as an international language that brings people together, connects, and encourages growth and courage. Jeremy is honored to participate in Shall We Dance this year and is excited to partner with the Sexual Assault Crisis Center to improve, grow, and safeguard our community.

Angela Athey, Valley Social Dance Studio

Angela Athey fell in love with Ballroom Dancing in 2006. She has been training and teaching at Valley Social Dance Studio ever since! Her background teaching high school pom poms and jazz, as well as tap and ballet for a local parks and recreation department made the transition to ballroom seamless. She feels pride in seeing her students enjoy and learn dancing. “Being able to do what I love and teach others to dance made it an easy decision to become a ballroom dance teacher!”
