More About Me

Growing up, Lorin thought she had no dancing ability whatsoever. But after watching a few seasons of Dancing with the Stars, she figured that if a parade of burly football players and C-list celebrities could look glamorous while learning to Foxtrot and Cha Cha, then so could she! Two years after her first Sunday lesson with the Ballroom Dance Club, she has become more comfortable dancing in any environment, from a packed club in downtown Athens to her own living room, entertaining a modest audience of her often-confused roommates. Although she still has a long way to go, she has certainly come to love ballroom and the right-brained balance it provides in the midst of unending pre-med requirements.
