I live in NW DC. My home is in Petworth, very near Lincoln's cottage at the Old Soldiers home. I Have a health care practice on Wisconsin ave a block from the Chevy Chase Ballroom and was an adjunct instructor in GWs' Exercise Science Dept for over 10 years. I presently teach a number of adult education classes for Professionals in the City


Like free style rock & roll dancing with DJs and local bands and have taken the Gotta Swing beginner classes at the Chevy Chase Ballroom. Like to go to Glen echo for Tom & Debra's big Saturday dances and also go to the Contra dances at Glen Echo. Currently taking Waltz classes at Joy of Motion and would like to find a Waltz partner to practice with.


I like to strength train at least 2x a week and am a member of the North West Sport and Health club across from the Wilson pool off Wisconsin Ave. I teach flexibility and strength training and have been doing a full-hour stretching class at 7:30 every Thursday morning for over 10 years at our downtown DC YMCA.
