That’s all very interesting and potentially very valuable, but we’re also keen to get to know what makes the Polymer Pros tick outside work, so we also asked Adriana what she gets up to in her spare time. It becomes clear that her family is at the center of her world.
Adriana is married with three young children – two boys who play soccer, baseball and ice hockey, and a daughter who dances, sings and plays the piano – so pretty much every day she takes them to sports practices, clubs and games.
But Adriana does not restrict herself only to spectating. “When my daughter goes to her dance class, I take advantage and have my dancing time as well,” she says.
“I’ve loved dancing my entire life, but I never learned dancing formally; I just did what’s called street dance. I’ve always admired dancers and wondered if I could do the same, so I started classes and realized that I enjoyed them very much and did very well in the competitions.
The picture is from the Las Vegas Open Competition in March 2019. I competed in three single dances and two combined dances. They were all Latin Ballroom (Cha-cha, Samba, Jive and Rumba) and I was awarded first place in all the single dances, first place in one of the combinations and second in the other, all in my age and level category.
