Dance

I’m an avid competitive and social ballroom dancer. I started dancing as an undergraduate on the Claremont Colleges Ballroom Dance Company, and have also danced with the Cambridge University Dancesport Team, the XS Latin Formation Team, and the Caltech Ballroom Dance Club, where I taught ballroom classes and served as both President and Vice President.

For many years I competed in International Standard Ballroom with April Wong, and have competed in International Latin in the past as well. In college I also did a lot of formation dancing and show dancing.

I'm experienced in a number of forms of social dance; at the moment I mostly dance Blues and West Coast Swing, but I’m also experienced in Lindy Hop and Salsa.
