I'm a recent graduate of Allegheny College. I was a student of Computer Science, with a Religious Studies minor, and I spent all my free time dancing. The combination is about as odd as it sounds. As a lover of both the sciences and the arts, I have been teaching a variety of subjects for some time. I've taught programming/computer science at Princeton University the past two summers, and I have shared my love of ballroom/dance by teaching college students for the past two years. My languages include Java, C, C++, SQL basics, and python. The dance forms I can share with you are Waltz, American Tango, Foxtrot, Swing, Rumba, ChaCha, and a touch of Bachata, Salsa, and Merengue. If you're a beginner, I hope you take a chance and learn to love dance as much as I do. If more experienced, I would love to broaden your horizons and help develop your technique, style, and repertoire. Either way, keep on dancing!
