The one thing I am passionate about...
Dancing! I'm a retired Broadway dancer, but I can't seem to actually retire - something keeps drawing me back to the stage. Also, I'd love to have a partner to master swing, salsa, tango, the cha-cha and other social dances. I know the basics, but I crave more. Also also, I teach dance to an excellent group of teenagers, and I love (almost) every minute of it.I'm also passionate about success (as I define it). I enjoy doing a variety of things, and doing them all to the absolute best of my abilities. This passion, plus some natural ability, has allowed me to acquire a lot of interesting talents - some hidden, some not-so-hidden.
I typically spend my leisure time
Teaching dance a couple nights a week, juggling on Wednesdays, performing in a few shows every year, ultimate frisbee, goofing around with some new technology, reading a thick book late into the night... I love doing athletic things, but snuggling on the couch is also a nice activity.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honestly, honesty. I don't enjoy lies and mind games. Let's just tell the truth to each other, okay? Okay.
The first thing people notice about me
I can come off as shy while I'm watching people and taking in my surroundings. Some people might mistake it for aloofness, when it really isn't.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Alchemist. I thoroughly enjoyed it - it helped me put certain aspects of my life into perspective. Now I'm in the middle of both the Cryptonomicon and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my physical well being
- the companionship of my dog
- homemade enchiladas
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I have at least 10 pairs of tap shoes.Also, filling out this form is rather difficult. I communicate differently with every person I meet, and coming up with general catch-all statements is challenging.As alluded to above, I make a mean enchilada. Seriously, you should try them sometime.
