more about me

Having gone through his entire life without knowing how to dance, a friend from work (and current BPG member Cherish Collins) convinced Sol to attend a Friday Night Dance Party on his first semester attending UGA. Naturally, he chickened out after the lesson. Even after watching Ballroom Magic 2018, he had not thought of pursuing ballroom dance until later that year, when he signed up for Ballroom Foundations I on the day of the first classes of the semester. Ever since, he has learned the variety of styles encompassing ballroom and beyond. Though he is eager to learn, it still takes a bit for things to stick. But the great people within the group, Ballroom Foundation classes, and the dance community around Athens has made the journey a whole lot more fun! Whenever he isn't practicing, Sol enjoys messing around with music production software, attending EDM show and festivals, goofing off with friends, and spreading his love of jalapeno waffles.
