I’m Elise, and I’m a ballroom dancer.
I have been dancing for about 10 years and actively compete in standard (novice/pre-champ) and smooth (pre-champ/champ) as an amateur in the collegiate and USA Dance circuits. Sometimes I dance Latin and rhythm as well.
I spend the rest of my time in grad school studying social psychology, running experiments, and teaching. I also like yoga, lifting weights, and rock climbing, but rarely have time to do all three regularly along with dancing.
This blog is meant to be thoughts and advice about ballroom, with a couple dashes of psychology thrown in as well. And pretty much whatever else I want to write about.
