I'm passionate about changing the "formal ball/dance/event" community within the anime convention community to be a safer, more enjoyable, and more educational space. I want to teach lessons that accommodate every kind of dancer regardless of age, ability, experience, orientation/identity, partner acquisition, and any other factor that might hinder someone from enjoying dance elsewhere. At any event I host, I use my knowledge of BPM and movement sensitivity to craft a playlist that can be enjoyed by all.
