Paul’s Dance Experience:
He does not have any dance experience but played soccer at OSU and hopes that will be helpful.

Fun Facts about Paul:
Dr. Hoffman met his dancing diva partner Kelly, when she played soccer in the MYSP that he helped organize in 1979. Although clearly more of a dancer that an athlete, she still thinks fondly of those years on the soccer field, especially because her dad was her coach.
