ABOUT Firefighter :) (Login to Contact Firefighter :) )

Hi Gang, it is me.. Blake.. your friendly neighborhood fireman...many people at Gottaswing know me, and since I have been back in the states I have yet to go to a class or even a dance... such a shame. I spent the past year in Greece, where I danced some in Athens, and in Thessaloniki on the Greek beaches. It was a wonderful experience, but honestly, it was a totally different level of dancing there. I am a firefighter with a rotating schedule, and I also work a part time job, so scheduling dancing can be a bit daunting. However, I am willing to get out and "cut a rug" and I am looking for someone to practice with.


I danced from Aug 2011-Fed 2011 with Tom and Debra and Gary and Sue in their classes. It was a lot of fun, then I moved to Crete, Greece for a year. I went to a couple events and then found out what international swing dancing is really like, and WOW, my eyes were opened. So, now I am looking for someone to help me perfect those dancing skills. If my partner is a beginner, that is fine.. no worries.. however, my schedule is a bit daunting as I stated above.


History, Hiking, Kayaking, Bicycling, travel, Tour Guiding...Greece, and maybe one day going back there and living forever!
