Here are some great photos of my Rumba dance partner Liz and I. These are part of a competitive ballroom dance routine that we do to West Side Story music. You can see our videos of the dance performance here. Thanks to Tom for taking these great photos.
Our ballroom dance formation team of 16 people from Albany traveled to the NYC dance festival this past weekend. I took several videos and photos to share with you.
Here is a video from just outside of the competition ballroom. You can get a sense of the excitement and ballroom dance vendors.
Next I chat with Paul and Louise our ballroom dance team choreographers and teachers. Paul and Louise are the best dancers in their age group in the United States and super awesome people to be around.
We are always open to new folks joining our team. Feel free to contact Louise if this looks like fun to you.

I have had many creative ideas since I started dancing. From software companies to new ways to organize civilizations. Focusing on one thing has been challenging for me. In a recent personal coaching session I finally understood why it is important for me to believe in myself and give my gifts. It is important because it makes me whole, helps me be who I am which makes all of my relationships and the world a better place.
In today’s hot help video I share why I am focusing on teaching the world social partner dancing.
My why is because I want to live in a culture that values cooperation more than competition. A place where people help and support each other the way that a forest supports the growth of trees, birds and everything else in its ecosystem that makes it live and work.
Here are just a few of the things I believe would be different in a culture that valued collaboration.
1. People would be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.
2. Life support systems such as clean air and water would be healthy and easily accessible.
3. People would enjoy their work.
So I hope today’s hot help tip inspires you to be more, well…you.
