What We Are All About

At Betsy Dean Dancing-Fitness , we desire to honor God by enjoying everyday life together, walking with one another through the stresses of it. We dance, exercise, chat, laugh, and pray together to take care of our health (physically/spiritually/emotionally/mentally/relationally). We encourage one another to dream and reach for our goals, all in an accepting environment. Our uniqueness is shown in our commitment to enter into friendship, caring for the health of each person in our fitness community, cheering them on to reach for increased health in all areas of life.

Meet Betsy

In March 2006, I started attending Group Dance Fitness classes. As I continued to attend classes, the blend of exercise and dance strengthened my body, mind, and spirit. I began teaching Group Fitness in January 2009. At my Fitness classes, I desire for people to have fun, let go, and be themselves, as they open their hearts to the One who first gave them Life and Breath.

Our Mission

Our Mission at Betsy Dean Dancing is based on the words of Jesus in Mark 12:29-31.  First, we are called to love God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength.  Second, we are to love our neighbors as ourselves.   In the Bible, God defines love as selfless, constant, and committed.  We endeavor to live this out by focusing on the four areas listed below.  We are a Fitness Community, and both Betsy and her husband, Tony, are thankful to do life with each person.

Building – Community, Faith, and Fitness

Developing – Physically, Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally, Relationally

Deepening – Our relationships with Jesus and one another

Declaring – Truth from the Bible into lives for transformation

Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord.

And you must love the Lord your God with

all your heart,

all your soul,

all your mind,

and all your strength.'

The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'

No other commandment is greater than these.”

(Mark 12:29-31, NLT)
