"While I dance
I can not judge,
I can not hate,
I can not separate my self from life.
I can only be joyful and whole.
This is why I dance."
ELIZABETH CANCHOLA Group Fitness Instructor and Owner
Born and raised in Guadalajara Jal. Mexico and moved to Oregon in December of 2000. Dance has always been a part of my life it's in my blood, l've been dancing since I was 4 years old and for me, S.W.E.A.T. Studio has become a dream come true. It's a combination of two things l love the most, dancing and working out.
S.W.E.A.T. Latin Dance Studio is a great opportunity for me to show my love to others in my own special way by teaching them what I've learned about dancing, fitness, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. To me it is a great way to express who I am and where I came from.
Dancing has made a major impact on my life; it means more than just music and dance steps, it is my opportunity to express who I am, it is the therapy to my generic depression, it is my stress reliever, it is my heart, mind, body, and soul. The effect that dancing has had on me, I believe and know that it can have the same on others; which is why I became an instructor. I am extremely passionate about what I do, but most importantly my main focus is on my students and helping them reach their goals whether it is a physical goal or simply to have fun and be confident. Be ready to feel and move with the Latin rhythms and beats, smile and have fun, get your sweat on, and enjoy every minute of each class.
