ALBION – Amy Sidari has been performing dance and occasionally singing for the community for more than four decades.

Two years ago she opened a cabaret at her dance studio and has welcomed many singers, musicians, comedians and other performers to the venue at 28 West Bank St.

This Friday the site will feature a familiar face in a new role. Sidari is doing a one-person comedy show. She said the show is a bit of a family roast, with some teasing of her parents, husband and five children. She is pictured above on Monday during a rehearsal for the show.

She said her family has provided her with lots of material for her show, “Did I Say That Out Loud?”

She directs plenty of her material at her mother and father, Sandy and Ace Caldwell, and some of their struggles as they get older and wrestle with forgetfulness and have a hard time hearing.

“Aging can be fun,” Sidari said.

Sidari may poke fun, but she said she wants to let her family know how much she loves them, and appreciates some of their quirks. She wants to share some of those family follies with the community.

“God has given me so many moments of laughter I have to share it,” Sidari said.

She has been dancing since she was a toddler, first taking classes at Christ Church and learning ballet, tap, jazz, point and other styles.

Sidari opened her own studio, Gotta Dance by Miss Amy, in 1997 and she and her staff teach dance and creative arts.
