I became passionate about dance in my mid-twenties. For most other pursuits, this would not be considered late in life, but for dance, I consider myself a late bloomer. My first dance love is salsa– it made me realize that my best tool for artistic and personal expression is my own body. That opened the door to the study of other types of dance– mostly jazz and modern, but I have dabbled in pretty much every other style.

Having a demanding full-time job, and a wonderful husband and friends that I enjoy spending time with often makes it challenging for me to pursue dance to the extent that I would like. If I can’t make it to class every day, at least I can blog about it!
