ABOUT Chris (Login to Contact Chris )

I'm from Long Island NY but have lived in DC metro for 30 years. I'm energetic and a good dancer. Dance Exercise 5x a week and social dance on weekends. Work in the computer government contracting business in Tysons.


I've danced (exercised) for 30 years - even taught for 10 years. I took several swing dance lessons over 15 years before I started partner dancing about 5 years ago. I've taken swing lessons with Tom&Debra; Sue&Gary, both several times thru intermediate. I swing dance at Glen Echo and Dulles Hilton. I also dance many styles of dance (but not ballroomish trained). I dance regularly at several single dance venues or mixed venues with couples. I like to learn new styles of dance and dance with more partners. I'd like to be in a partner 'dance' class (Sundays at Born to Dance). I'm enrolled now but not in a partner class - looking for a partner so I can do so.


Fitness and outdoor activities. Beach more than mountains. Working eats into time for other interests. As you can see, I'm not technical enough since I couldn't load my picture rotated correctly. And I'm in the IT business. I must dance too much.
