Favorite Moment at the Department of Dance
Doing the slow walk through Red Square in Mark Haim's Comp 1 class.
My initial plans were to move to New York to dance, but that is on hold for now. I plan on getting my Pilates certification, working with the Seattle Tennis Education Foundation and continuing my Educator role with lululemon post-grad. And of course I hope to dance and move as much as possible! Physical Therapy school sometime in the future...
