 Physical fitness and eating healthy has always been a top priority for Jayne Taylor. Over the years, she has worked with personal trainers to guide her through her fitness journey but what she has found is that through dance she’s been able to fulfill her fitness goals. Ballroom dance not only keeps you physically active but it also helps you build strength, stamina, balance, flexibility and improves your posture.

Jayne began dancing with the Fred Astaire studios over a decade ago and has been a student of the Westerville studio for the last 6 years. When she started the dance program, ballroom dance wasn’t as popular as it is today. She had always had a fascination with ballroom dance and wanted to take lessons to help her build confidence, balance and grace of stature. In addition to staying physically active through dance, she loves the glitz and glamour of ballroom dance dresses and of course the shoes.

“I hope to keep dancing forever—it makes me happy and it makes me feel great,” said Jayne. “I love that not only am I learning a skill through this hobby but it’s fun and good for my health,” she added.

Jayne takes two dance lessons a week to refine the skill and has participated in a few Fred Astaire competitions and events. Her goal is to commit to one to two events a year so she can continue to grow as a dancer. These activities allow her the opportunity to showcase her talent and build new friendships. This year, she will be one of our stars at the October 2 regional showcase, “Lights, Camera, Action,” where she will perform a solo performance to the theme song of one of her favorite movies, “Somewhere in Time.”

Since taking lessons, Jayne hears music differently and has a greater appreciation for it. She enjoys learning all the numerous dances to different types of music and performing them with her Instructors Sam Walker and Keith Jastram. She also enjoys that dance allows her to unwind from her hectic workday and relieve any stress she may be feeling. Jayne finds dance to be a rewarding investment because not only is she advancing her skill level through formal training but it allows her experiences that she would not normally have access to without the support of dance professionals.

Jayne is a vice president of finance and administration for a non-profit organization where she manages the financial, human resources and operational affairs. In her free time, she provides administrative support to the Dachshund Dog Rescue of Ohio doing home visits and dog transports. She loves the breed so much that she has five dogs of her own. She also enjoys gardening, biking and Yoga as well as nurturing her creative side through sewing and oil and watercolor painting.
