New Cannettic Dance Academy opens at EDD...

Posted: Tuesday, August 17, 2004

Kenai Economic Development District's (EDD) incubator program is spawning another new business in the local area. The incubator program is designed to provide an opportunity for new entrepreneurs to launch their business with a minimal start up investment. The EDD assists with typical business systems and office equipment that helps get the operation underway until it is able to sustain an investment in its own facility at another location.

Dance Instructor, Physical Therapist, and Fitness Trainer, Cannetta Brook Salmon, has opened a new Dance Academy at the EDD building in Kenai that she is calling "Cannettic Energy." The play on words is no coincidence, Cannetta gets it from her parents, "Both my Dad and Mom loved fishing, so they named me Can-net-a-Brook Salmon, and yes, that's my real name," says Cannetta, who has become well known for her Artists In Motion dance performances in the Central Peninsula. Last weekend Cannetta opened her doors for class registration for her Academy's fall semester.

Cannetta has been teaching dance in the local area since she was fourteen, and has now become a Physical Massage Therapist, as well as a Kick-boxing, and exercise instructor at several health clubs. She has been looking forward to opening her own business and has incorporated all her skills in what she calls a fitness haven and dance academy. The new studio offers some 2,000 sq. ft. of floor space where Cannetta has installed a new dance floor and exercise equipment, "We have lots of space, so we are offering parents the opportunity to bring in their own equipment whether it's a cycling bike, treadmill or other equipment and work out free of charge while their child is taking dance lessons," explained Cannetta. Salmon is offering some 20 different dance classes that include everything from kick boxing to classical dance, hip-hop, jazz and tap for ages 3 to 60 at levels from beginners to intermediate and advanced. Cannetta hopes her new location will save parents in Nikiski and Kenai a lot of driving miles, "That's why I've located here to provide a complete service for those who are not able to drive so far to take advantages of the physical and mental well being that comes along with the fun of dance and exercise, keeping your heart healthy and happy, that's what it is really all about at any age," said Salmon. Registration will continue for classes at the new Cannettic Energy Dance Academy, for details visit the EDD building or call 398-3349 for an appointment.
