Hi All! As some of you may recall, I was a member of the old forum. I have had some problems with access to the new forum this past week. Nothing that some determination (which I have in great supply) and time (which seemed to be scarce recently) couldn't solve. I found some extra time, worked out the problem, and now I can finally read the new forum again!
I am a business executive and engineer (non-degreed) working in wireless communications. My academic background was in medical science and business, but serendipity led me to my career, which I enjoy. I live, work, and play in the Washington, DC/Baltimore metropolitan area.
I am a competitive amateur ballroom dancer in my spare time. I study and compete in both Standard (Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, etc.) and Latin (Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, etc.). I am really keen on continuously improving myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. I use kettlebells, clubbells, Zdorovye, Be Breathed, Slavyanskiy Byeg, Flow State Performace Spiral, Body Flow, yoga, and grappling moves to improve myself and my dancing. I also use Coach Davies' Renegade Training and Pavel's Power to the People, stretching, and joint mobility ideas.
I practice, play, and/or train in some way almost every day. I have a major dance competition in Atlanta in 2 weeks and a showcase in 3 weeks, so I have a lot on my plate right now.
I have received a great deal of assistance, knowledge, and feedback from the members of the Tribe. It is wonderful to have this new forum and to see so many new people participating.
