Meet our January student of the month Becca Latoff!

How were you introduced to ballroom and latin dancing?

For my 17th birthday, my dad got me lessons. We learned the Waltz together and put on a little showcase number to "Sunrise, Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof. After that, I went off to college and joined the ballroom team because hey, I already knew Waltz! What a head start I had! That was how I got introduced to the rest of the ballroom and latin dances I know.

What motivated you to keep dancing?

Some of the best people I've ever met have been dancers. It is such a fun, supportive community, I couldn't bare to leave it now. It's also so affirming to see myself get better. I was so shy and reserved at 17, and in many other contexts I still am, but when I'm dancing I am happy and confident. I never feel better about myself than when I'm dancing.

What is the most rewarding aspect of dance to you?

This is such a hard question! But I guess it's a lot like the previous answer: I've made life long friends and become a person that I am proud of because of dance.

What is your favorite dance?

I take it back, this is the hardest question. Truthfully, it changes all the time. It's whatever dance I'm dancing, but...I've always fancied myself a latin dancer. Jive or Samba, probably, but it'd be different if you asked me tomorrow.

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

Hm, I think maybe a Quickstep or a Jive. I aspire to be the embodiment of a Foxtrot, but I think I'm a little too bouncy for that.

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

I am a huge history nerd. I majored in Classical Studies, and I frequently give my friends and family lectures of ancient Greek words or the influence of Roman art in American history. I think the past is fascinating and important and surprisingly relevant pretty much all the time.
