Entertainment briefs: Louis Van Amstel; Pyrotecnico contest

Friday, March 15, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

Dance champion Louis Van Amstel, of the ABC show “Dancing with the Stars,” is coming to Westmoreland County on March 18 and 19 to teach his “LaBlast Master Class.”

The partner-free dance fitness program turns components of ballroom dances, like the Cha Cha and Jive, into a calorie-torching workout. The LaBlast DVD series for home workouts came out in 2011.

The dancer most recently paired with actress Sabrina Bryan on “Dancing with the Stars: All Stars” last season, but he is sitting out this season of the hit show, which premieres on Monday.

Van Amstel will be teaching at 5:30 and 6:45 p.m. March 18 at Galaxy Fit Club in North Huntingdon. Details: 724-861-8999. He will teach at the same time slots on March 19 at Westmoreland Athletic Club in Greensburg. Details: 724-832-7050. The cost is $20. Call the venues to register.
