Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My happiest recent moment was choreographing and performing my
first original semi-professional dance piece. I've danced in
various companies in New York and DC for many years, and finally
got the courage to do it on my own, and it went really well! Even
made a few audience members cry (it's a rather intense
As a result of that performance, I've been invited to perform at a
variety of other festivals this year, next one in Mexico - surreal,
When not performing, rehearsing, or social dancing, I can often be
found at the gym in support of dance, I really enjoy
lifting/throwing dance partners :) Super bonus points to you if you
have a dance/lifts/gymnast/aerial/acroyoga background and want to
play around with lifts/aerials with me!
I'm also a:
huge movie buff (one of my prized possessions is an original prop
sword from the Princess Bride),
diehard Lakers fan,
regular theater go-er (love Kennedy Center),
amateur poker player,
wanderlust sufferer extraordinaire,
and a rambler, apparently.
So enough about me; I'm here to meet you! I enjoy people who have a
zest for life, who have a desire to try new things, and who want to
My perfect day with a significant other would involve:
Daytime: Something adventurous! hiking? trapeze class? tough
mudder? throw a dart at a map of the DMV area and drive there and
figure out something to do?
Evening: Something classy. I am a dancer, so some tango maybe?
Crash an embassy gala? Musical at Kennedy Center? Make our own
outdoor movie night somewhere?
Late Night: ::CENSORED::
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
While dance is what I wake up thinking about, I'm very fortunate to
be able to support all my dance ventures with a fascinating day job
where I work to assist US companies' investments in developing
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of things! But in terms of ones that you could directly
benefit from :)
playing/singing "Your Body is a Wonderland" (not ashamed to admit
that one of the reasons I learned guitar was that many years ago a
girl I had a crush on really liked this song)
solving quadratic equations (ok...so you probably won't benefit
from this one...unless you need help studying for the GMAT or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen (aren't I original taking this literally!!??)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the world is how it is. Why people are as they are. How can we
improve things. Wondering if am I earning my time here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some recent Fridays: jazz bar, salsa dance, west coast swing
dancing, milonga (tango), contra dance, National Theater, shabbat
dinner (more social than religious for me), Disneyland, house
party, watching a movie with some friends, cooking a big meal for a
bunch of friends then playing Rock Band and Mario Kart on my old
school, still functioning, Nintendo 64.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Surprisingly, this has been an issue in the dating world for me, so
I think it's worth mentioning. It's probably related to me being a
dancer, but physical touch and affection are so incredibly
important for me.
If you don't like to touch/be touched we almost certainly won't
work. If you feel guilty/dirty (and not in the good way) about sex,
we definitely won't work. We will work if you like long, slow,
indulgent kisses; unhurried foreplay that only ends because one
person can't bear the anticipation anymore; and the amazingness
that is just being physically present and comfortable with someone.
If you ever listen to Dan Savage, I aspire to be GGG, and hope you

Also, I have a very friendly cat I adopted from a shelter who is
not going anywhere, and if/when I have a house with a yard I would
love to get two dogs, so...if you're an animal lover!
