ABOUT Curren (Login to Contact Curren )


I've always loved dancing, and can't remember a time when I heard a good beat of any kind without at least bopping my head to it. Didn't start taking dance lessons, though, until Salsa (on 1 and 2) in 2004, and belly dancing in 2008/9. Unfortunately, after a while, I started developing knee pain, so have only been dancing occasionally. Well, as of Jan 2013, I'm back at it with Swing! But with longer breaks and more stretching as the knees call for it. I'm about to start my third class with Tom and Debra today and have taken Lindy 1 and 2 at Mobtown. I've got some solid basics but am looking forward to "thinking" less and less on the floor, and just dancing. I've also taken Kate and Bobby's Balboa Basics, and plan at some point to take West Coast classes, and as a DC-native would kick my own butt outta town if I did all of this and never learned to Hand Dance.
