Glendale, CA, United States
I took a social dancing class at CSULB with my friend Jason and his friends. Learned a lot of cool ballroom dance styles like salsa, waltz, and east coast swing. I liked the salsa thing, but I could never bring the proper "sexy back." haha! Long story short, I took a bunch of swing lessons through OC Swing and it stuck with me after that.
I moved back home to Glendale after graduating and I try to go dancing. However, recently, I haven't been dancing because I had to deal with a family situation. It's been 4 months and I am now determined to go out and at least take some lessons, since that is how I started. Besides, there are so many new people I must meet!
I love lindy hop because of its high energy fun and how it can be slow & smooth...like... a ... baby's butt??? LoL! Plus it great exercise!
