The Artist Matters

This is a special one. We finally have my wife, Anna Rudy-Monico on the show. Back in 2002, we met at karaoke in New York. She laughed at my Mrs. Doubtfire imitation and the saga began. Besides her awesome singing voice, I soon discovered she was a dancer and a fitness instructor at a local gym. Got my first taste of her signature class, Jazzarobex in 2003. I loved the way she combined dance moves with aerobics. As did the many people who flocked to her classes But her story begins in Brooklyn, NY where she always had a love of music and dancing anywhere the mood struck her. It was in the 80’s, while living in New Mexico, that she discovered an aerobics class at a gym. She was hooked. But felt a calling to begin teaching those classes herself. So, she studied and learned and created Jazzarobex. Anna also became an Examiner for AFAA, testing up and coming instructors. In Fuzecraze, she taught different types of choreography to dancers. She has also become a Silver Sneaker instructor and presenter for Tivity Health. Anna also got involved with Standing Ovation Dinner Theatre, choreographing some of the shows, including “Zeus’ Big Surprise” and “Homecoming at Transylvania High”. With a busy schedule of 13 classes, Anna still finds time to sing as part of the Hillside Community Baptist Church praise team. I’m grateful to be married to this amazing, hard-working and talented woman. So, I hope you will enjoy my chat with my wife, Anna Rudy-Monico.
