I first learned swing dancing in Houston, TX, in Jan 2010. I was taught west coast swing dancing, so when I moved to CT that summer, I had to learn a pulse as part of the lindy hop scene. My favorite thing about dancing is how it is a universal way to communicate and express oneself. The thing that motivates me is watching other people dance who emanate passion and energy through their movements and by watching them, it is clear, they love what they are doing. When not helping HU organize fabulous dances, I work as a psychologist.
