Town you Live In: Nashua

Elizabeth and Ray
How long have you been dancing? 4 years

How did you get into ballroom? I was looking for a hobby that would fit my schedule since I worked odd hours. I had danced ballet previously and was interested in learning a new style of dance.

Which dance do you enjoy the most? West Coast Swing. It’s very different from the other dances. There’s a lot of room for improvising and styling.

What is your favorite dance memory? It’s too hard to choose! I enjoyed some of the more comedic formations like the goofy samba (flash mob!!) and the zombie cha cha. But probably the most wonderful dance memory would be the kindness, camaraderie and friendships I’ve enjoyed through dance. Whether it’s someone asking me to dance at a social or the cheering on of your peers at a competition or surprising Ray and Maria with our secret formation or in my case even meeting my future husband!

What dance goal would you like to conquer next? I would like to work on my styling in West Coast Swing and become a better follower in Argentine Tango.

What are your other hobbies? I enjoy playing the piano, reading, drawing and watching sci-fi shows.

Tell us something you think most people don’t know about you. I’m an extreme Doctor Who fan and have been all over Wales and England to see filming locations. I’ve even waited in line on a sidewalk in NYC for 14 hours for a season premiere.
