Ballroom Dancing

I am a competitor ballroom dancer and trainer. I have competed in several regional and national competitions, such as Harvard, MIT, Manhattan Amateur Classic (MAC), International Grand Ballroom at San Francisco, and USA Dance Nationals in 2007 and 2009. I have won numerous awards at these competitions, but I'm too lazy to list them here!

I have been very active in teaching and promoting ballroom dancing at various places. I was the captain of UMass Ballroom Dance Team, and have trained dancers at UMass, UNC, Duke, NC State, and Rutgers. I have taught dancing to elementary school children, differently abled kids, wedding couples, and senior citizens.

I have also learned the scrutineering system for the ballroom dance competitions. I have developed my own system, called DanceSportsComp to run such competitions. This system has been used in several collegiate competitions in the Carolinas.
