How long have you been dancing?

I've been dancing all my life. I' from Peru, so that's part of my cultural background. However, I have not taken any lessons and don't know about formal partner dancing.

How would you rate your dance proficiency?

It depends.. I suck at Country music :-( I do pretty well with Salsa and other Latin dances, and I love dancing to classic rock and Disco.

Dance styles

Latin (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Boleros, Regeton, Latin Waltz, Afro-Latin, Marinera, Wayno, etc.), Classic Rock, Disco. But I'd love to learn more styles. I tried Country for the first time recently, and I'm terrible at it! I'd like to explore as many dance styles as possible, but not having a dance partner makes it very difficult (I'm single). I'd love to learn to Tango!

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Besides the above?... Dancing is my PASSSION, but I don't get to do it much. I'm Vegan. I'm a really nice man who just moved to Dallas (May 2014) and doesn't have any friends here yet. I'm an animal lover, I'm a published poet (2 poetry books, working on third), and a professional martial artist (4th Degree Kung-Fu Master instructor and competitor). I love working out and going to the gym regularly (still trying to lose many extra pounds). I love the beach, and miss it so much being so far from it here in the DFW area (I grew up 3 blocks from the beach, literally, so I kind of got used to it). I don't watch TV, but I love going to the movies. I usually have 2 or 3 books that I'm reading simultaneously, mainly about spiritual development (not religious), eastern philosophies, and I love to read about consciousness (its philosophy, psychology, neuro-science, etc.).
