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.
