My self-summary
I am exploring the spaces between parenthood, dating, taking my time getting to know people and a fulfilling, lasting connection. I am happily busy with my two daughters, but am also dedicated to my own experiences. I thoroughly enjoy being self employed and spending time on creative projects in dance. I make my living teaching people how to connect and move more freely in their bodies.
I find myself shifting from very pragmatic, organized alignment fundamentals and biomechanics at work, to emotional, freeflowing and sometimes aggressive dance in my free time.
I'm inspired by the older Chinese lady holding onto a stop sign to do her stretches.
I began meditating and have been slowly grounding through that and finding a lot of comfort and satisfaction in that quiet, still place. I see it as similar to dance, there is a simultaneous letting go and focus.
I would enjoy meeting a single dad who can relate to me as a parent. I'm also open to just going out and having fun with someone kind and easy going.
What I’m doing with my life
I see my life in chapters and think about what I want to be manifesting. Artistic collaborations, honing my choreographic voice and deepening my connection to my body are central right now. I'm also working on my house, trying to save money to make repairs and cleaning out 13 yrs of stuff. I am not a hoarder!! But I do fantasize about empty spaces and sparse drawers and cabinets. Mind you, two children keep this fantasy in check. I'm thinking about how to travel with and without my kids and how to create more passive income so I can focus on creative projects vs. pragmatic work hours teaching.
I’m really good at
Improvising.. Finding parking. Suggesting ways for people connect with their bodies. Making people laugh. Making a mess with my kids. Tuning out a mess before I am able to deal with it. Procrastinating, thinking the rules don't apply to me, which is not necessarily a good thing... Having long term dreams and goals and making them happen.
The first things people usually notice about me
My red hair, blue eyes, freckles, long legs. Hell if i know.

I like movies at the Embarcadero. Don't seem to have time to watch tv but I enjoyed Arrested Development, Raising Hope, Dailey Show, Louis Ck. I like checking out City Arts and Lectures, Commonwealth Club, and listening to KQED upon waking.
It's amazing how many cool things, people, venues we have here, hooray.
Also, If you are on the pulse of interesting offbeat movies I would love to be taken to some.

Food: I like almost all good food (opinion) as long as it tastes good (opinion) and doesn't have knuckles or sinew... I worked in the restaurant business for a bit and I really like not paying for food. Ah, those days are over. I have been vegetarian, vegan, and pescatarian. I admire those who are able to put their politics where their mouth is and still get proper nutrition. For me, I just seem to need to eat the meat. Though I don't take a Portlandia approach to chicken, I try to be mindful of what I'm eating without being elitist or forgetting the inherent privilege that comes with being so choosy and spending so much. I am humble and grateful I can choose.
The six things I could never do without
Moving my body
My Kids
Sunshine
Music
Believing things work out for a reason
Optimism
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to simplify and pair things down.
How to feel less rushed in a rushed city.
Growing as a teacher, remembering my clients are my teachers.
Remembering my kids are my teachers.
Being present.
Synchronicity.
What's going on sociopolitically and my impact, voice. What I'm teaching my kids and how they can resist reductionism and fear for possibilities, responsibility and empathy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to a performance, meeting friends, noodling in my studio, going out to listen to music. Or spending the evening with my kids and other families.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Why:)?

You have a glass half full attitude.
Like smart, complex women.
Are a feminist.
Have an artist's soul, silly outlook and a social conscience.
