Meet the Dancer

Jenny Soffin

Two things that sum Jenny up is her love for her family and her obsession for the outdoors! She says she is lucky to live so close to the Dunes and Lake Michigan with her husband, Eric, and children Maddie (15) and Max (13). Her love for the Duneland area inspired her to create the local apparel brand “The IN Coast” and to volunteer for Save the Dunes, a local organization dedicated to preserving, protecting, and restoring our dunes and waterways. Her family also started volunteering this year for Porter County Special Olympics to inspire and coach athletes of all ages. Jenny believes that if you love and feel proud of where you live, it creates a ripple effect that naturally inspires others along the way, building a true sense of community.  She is putting on her dancing shoes for the YMCA because she loves the Duneland Community and because she is passionate about people being happy and active! Jenny says her son loves to shoot hoops at the Y with his friends, but at the end of the day, the Y is a place for everyone to enjoy no matter what age and she is ready to shake her tail feathers for that!
