Dance Pet Peeve: (Hygiene, No connection, People who teach while dancing, etc)
Dancers/people who are continuously bumping into other dancers while they dance. Smell and breath.

Favorite Dance Moment?
My friend Jessica Mosely and I were having lunch at Mi Cocina in Uptown. They were playing a bachata song and we started dancing. At the end of the dance people who worked at the kitchen and the servers were started clapping. That felt really good. That’s one of my favorite moments.

Favorite Dance Genre?
Sensual Bachata ( Zoukchata? ? ) and Argentine Tango at the moment. Sometimes I prefer Salsa, kizomba and zouk. It fluctuates lol.
