Angela Cervantes

Angela Cervantes arrived in the United States in 1993 from Sicily. Unimpressed with the American take on Italian cuisine, she opened Angelina’s restaurant in Green Bay in 1998 with her family’s original recipes. This fulfilled her passion for cooking, but it took her until 2003 to discover TC Dance Club in Appleton to let her explore her other passion, ballroom dancing. Since then, she has won numerous competitions, become a beautiful dancer, and evolved into a very popular professional dance teacher. Angela enjoys students of all types and personalities and says her teaching style is fun, fun, fun!

Get to Know: DWOS15 Dancer Al Jamir

alI’m a community volunteer who serves on 15 boards and organizations.  My passion as an OPTIMIST is to service youth in our community thru the Green Bay Preble Optimist Club.  I serve the employees and clients of Cash Depot as Vice-President part-time.  I am a big brother thru the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program and a coach/mentor for Boys & Girls Club “Be Great Graduate” program.

My first dance experience took place at Burlington High School where I was involved in band and the drama club. I auditioned to be a member of “Kids from Burlington” and was selected.  We performed at school programs, competitions, and community events.  It was so much fun to learn dance moves and routines.  What I remembered most were the smiles from the audience.

My dream dance partner is either Peta Murgatroyd or Cheryl Burke. Regarding my favorite celebrity dancer on ABC’S “Dancing with the Stars”, it’s Olympic medalist Shawn Johnson. Her precision and timing were incredible.

My hobbies and passions include dancing and fly fishing.  I am a fishing guide on the Menominee River during the summer months.  I donate fishing trips to non-profit agencies for their fund raising efforts.  I love sharing our world class fishing with others, especially children.

I’m supporting the American Red Cross because it serves my purpose to serve my God and my community, and have FUN doing it! I choose to give back to the community that allowed me to be successful during my 20 years at Camera Corner.
