Ballroom Dance

For exercise and relaxation, I have been a competitive ballroom dancer since college. The theatricality and artistry of competitive ballroom dance give me a unique perspective on the aesthetics of the human body.

Hung Gar Kung Fu

Before I was a competitive dancer, I trained in armed and unarmed combat in Hung Gar Kung Fu under Sifu Yon Lee at the Chung Wah Academy in Quincy, MA, and in the Harvard Tai Chi Tiger Crane Club at Harvard University. Hung Gar is a Southern Shaolin style of Chinese martial arts. My preferred weapon is the spear. I also have a black belt in Kempo Karate.

Here are demonstrations:
