Hello, I’m Iris.

My first dance lesson was Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” video.

My favorite part about dance is the experience of being in my body. Feeling every movement, motion, and rhythm.

I’m a daughter,



Auntie to one beautiful little ballerina named Sophia and two boys, Carrington & Lealand, who love trucks and running.

San Francisco State University Lecturer.


Feminist, it’s not a dirty word.

Happy, joyous, and free.

Lover of dancewear,


and mild-tamed adventures that sound like “glamping”.

My girlfriends are the funniest people I know #sorrynotsorry.

I believe in love, honesty, kindness, and the future.

I believe girls of color need more love.

I believe dance can save us from ourselves.

I love to laugh, cry, laugh some more, clap at the end of movies, and lose myself in moments.

Thanks for stopping by.
