More interested in the live music for dancing - about ready to consider a routine


Tried a little ballroom in the 90s, but restarted swing in fall 2013. Took intermediate & speciality classes that need some practice time to stick. Couple injuries slow progress. Mostly do swing dance - moving into blues & west coast - starting to nibble at ballroom Toy a little with West Coast a & the jury i still out on trying to learn balboa & shag efforts.


Photography (street, landscape, low-light), video, & related arts and sciences - especially as it relates to earth science and cultural geography. Social and environmental justice advocacy; climate change mitigation; science & human rights Classical guitar & roots music & jazz is a main interest, but don't play anymore due to a broken finger a few years ago.
