In my free time, I may pick up an additional dance class, workout, or yoga class, play volleyball (when I actually have time otherwise I just dream about it), read, and I'm always down to go try something new. It's usually active, though. In the past six months I've done reformer pilates (I do regular pilates for dance stuff, but the reformer is great!), salsa classes, and trapezing. I loved all three and plan on continuing once I get settled.
I come from (and consider this a warning...) a ridiculously large and loud family comparable to the crew in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. (Less the Greek, add the Jew.) I'm close with everyone and wouldn't trade the ridiculousness for the world. My friends are phenomenal and equally as ridiculous and it makes for complete chaos if all are in the same room. Even the dogs need to take a timeout sometimes.
I came into the dance world on hip-hop, which I trained and performed pre-professionally 12 years on and off. (Currently back on with a vengeance.) And have spent the past 5 years doing ballet and modern 5 days/week. And yes, that is a good portion of the reason for my relocation. But... I'm not always serious about my dancing.
I will still gladly bust out the Running Man or Cabbage Patch if the situation calls for it. I believe that laughter makes the world go 'round. So any chance I get to cheer someone up or keep someone up, I'll take it. *big smile*
I'm admittedly a no B.S. kinda' gal when it comes to dating. Not in the I-hate-men-and-the-world-owes-me-something kind of way. I won't settle if I don't feel that things are right OR if I feel like either of us are compromising too much and I'm pretty forthright about that if it comes up. At the end of the day, I want to date someone I admire. But most importantly: You'll win my heart if you make me laugh (and laugh at me). I have a happy-go-lucky sense of humor and have no qualms with making fun of myself or goofing around. I do like sarcasm as long as it's tactful. Oh! And I think "dorky" is charming...
I like doing almost everything and I smile about 90% of my life. (Seriously. I do.) I am generally a low key girl but I love fashion and wear a variety of styles depending on my mood. I know that I sound busy, and I am. But I absolutely can and will make time when I meet someone I want to see. I love to travel recreationally and I have a running list of places to check off. I plan on making a major dent in my passport ASAP. I'm a bit of a bookworm, and a little bit dorky, but hey... It adds character.
