How were you introduced to ballroom and latin dancing?

I have loved to dance for as long as I can remember, but never had the opportunity to dance with a partner. Movies like Shall We Dance and Dirty Dancing, and of course, TV shows like Dancing with the Stars, have been favorites of mine and I have always wanted to give it a try. After years of looking up at the Dancesport Studio, I finally got the courage to climb the stairs a few years ago. Scott and the staff made it so easy to get started and I have been climbing the stairs ever since.

What motivated you to keep dancing?

I love the energy of dancing with a partner and seeing improvement over time. Being able to let go of inhibitions and judgement has been a big part of my progress. Performing was terifying for me at first and now I love to get out on the floor without my knees shaking...well, at least not as much=).

What is the most rewarding aspect of dance to you?

Dance has the ability to bring people together in such a joyful way. I have always wanted to connect my love of dance with my desire to give back to others in our community. I have had a wonderful opportunity to teach a dance class to a group of adults with developmental disabilities. We meet on the first Monday of every month and I love experiencing their enthusiasm and joy and being a part of this special group.

What is your favorite dance?

It is hard to choose just one as my favorite often depends on how I am feeling. It is fun to be able to channel your energy and express yourself through movement.

If you were a dance, which one would describe you best?

I am going to say the Mambo. I don't really know it well, but I do always think of myself as a MOM first=). Dancing allows me to escape from reality and have some time for myself to relax and let go of responsibility for a while.

What is one thing most DSA-ers don't know about you?

Most DSA-ers do not know that I have been teaching a ballroom fitness class called LaBlast and will now be bringing it to Dancesport Academy this May! Created by world champion and Dancing With The Stars coach and choreographer, Louis van Amstel, LaBlast is a high energy cardio workout based on all the dances seen on the show. This partner free, interval workout challenges both your mind and body and is for anyone who loves to dance and wants to get fit. Come join me on the dance floor Tuesdays from 9:30a to 10:30a. No partner or experience needed!
