“My goal is to make the Cape the epicenter of dance,” says dance instructor Adam Spencer, also known as Adam in Chatham.
“I want to form a coalition between Cape dance schools and work with one another so we can have an influx of dancers.” Spencer, originally from a small town outside of London, had intentions of becoming a doctor early on, but he made a decision 10 years ago that changed his life. He entered a contest and won a spot on the British television show “Strictly Dance Fever,” where he was awarded a scholarship to the London Studio Centre. “I spent the next few years training in London and the rest is history, really,” says Spencer, known as Adam in Chatham. After traveling around Europe, South America, Canada and the U.S., representing London in dance competitions, he set up shop in Chatham last year at Studio 878. How did he end up on the Cape? “Love,” he says, with a smile. Spencer’s husband, Michael Zeppieri, owns The Anchor Inn Beach House in Provincetown, and Spencer commutes every day to Studio 878, where he teaches ballroom and sass classes, which focus on poise and posture. He also trains dancers for regional competitions. “The dance studio provides a place for people to escape from their everyday lives,” says Spencer. “I call it happy making.” – Lisa Leigh Connors
