NU Dance

PRESIDENT

Emelia Cole

Chemical Engineering 

Year 3

Hi wonderful NUDancers,

My name is Emelia, I study Chemical Engineering and I will be your president for this year.

My role involves working with the rest of the committee to make sure the society runs as smoothly as possible. This is my 3rd year being at NUDance and I am so EXCITEDD!!!!

I’ve been dancing since I was 3 but mainly did ballet. Since joining NUDance I’ve had the opportunity to try lots of new styles of dance and have had the best support from the rest of the society in doing so. For this reason, it is really important to us that people leave their classes feeling like they have achieved something or helped someone else to! Please get as involved as you can; come to socials, take part in the show, performance squad, competition teams. Trust me, your uni experience will be better for it - NUDance truly is like a FAMILY!

We’ve got some new and exciting things planned for this year and you don’t want to miss out!! If you have any questions, feel free to drop a message - all of committee and your fellow dancers are here to help!! ????

Can’t wait to see you at class!! Xxx

TREASURERS

Chloe Bryan

Psychology

Year 2

Hello! I'm Chloe, one of the treasurer's for NUDance this year and a 2nd year Psychology student! I started dancing at the age of 3 and would have to say tap is my favourite style. Everyone at NUDance is super friendly and welcoming so please come and try some of our classes no matter your dance background- you will definitely love it! Can't wait to see you all!??

Tessa Boswell

Psychology

Year 2

Hi i’m Tessa, a second year Psychology student and i’m going to be one of the treasures for this year! My highlight of first year would definitely be joining NUDance. I’ve loved trying new styles, such as commercial, making amazing friends and pushing myself every week! My one bit of advice if you’re considering joining our fab society would be to go for it!! Throw yourself into classes, try something new and have fun - whatever your dance background or experience you’ll love every second with NUDance ?? can’t wait to meet you all next year! Xx


GENERAL SEC

Hayley Goddard

Physiotherapy 

Year 3

Hi everyone, I’m Hayley and I am your Gen Sec this year! I’m in third year studying physiotherapy and unfortunately this will be my final year at NUDance. I’ll send out the weekly timetable and try to answer as many of your questions as I can via our email and social media (pop me an email- msyhg@nottingham.ac.uk).

Over the last two years NUDance has honestly become my uni family; we share the buzz coming off stage together and help each other to destress in the studio during exam season. I’d encourage everyone to get involved in the society at whatever level because you will meet friends for life and it’s a great way to stay healthy. I cannot wait to meet you guys, see you in the studio. NUDance love x


PUBLICITY SEC

Lizzie Wright

Politics 

Year 3

Hey everyone! I’m Lizzie, your publicity sec for the 2nd year running and a third year politics student. NUDance is my favourite thing about uni - the best friends and fun Nottingham has to offer! Although commercial is my favourite style, contemporary and jazz are a close second. See you in class! ??


COMPETITIONS SEC

Ellie Mayhew

Physiotherapy

Year 2

Hiya! I’m Ellie and I’m super excited to be your competition sec for next year. I’m going into my second year of physiotherapy. I had such an amazing year with NUDance and can’t wait to be even more involved this year. You can catch me at most classes but my favourite style’s probably jazz. My 3 top tips for any newbies are:

1) Don’t be scared (the first class may seem a little daunting but I promise you’ll soon realise we’re one big family)

2) Don’t worry that you’re not good enough (all our classes are mixed ability and some styles have beginner sessions too)

3) Get involved and try something new (the more you put in the more you’ll get out)

I can’t wait to get back dancing and to meet all the lovely freshers! NUDance love xoxo


SOCIAL SEC

Sophie Katz

Nutrition

Year 2

Hi everyone, I’m Sophie! I am going into my second year studying Nutrition and delighted to be this year’s Social Sec. I have plenty of new ideas for you all and many events to plan. I cannot wait to put them into action. This year is the year to be at NUDance!

My main role is to plan socials throughout the year and make sure everyone feels just as welcome as I did when I entered this amazing family. These will range from sober socials like theatre trips to house parties and club nights. NUDance has been the highlight of my first year at Nottingham as I’ve learnt new styles of dance, performed a great show and smashed competition season. I can’t wait to do it all again with our newbies this year xxx 


SHOW SEC

Ellie Bonwick

Architecture

Year 3

Hi I’m Ellie B, an architect going into third year!! This year I am show Secretary which means I plan the end of year performance which involves all members of NU Dance and brings us all together for an amazing performance! I can’t wait to meet lots of new faces this year, my top tip for freshers would be to not be afraid of coming to classes as we were all there once!! Never say no to a night out and enjoy it while it lasts, trust me it all goes way too quickly!!!

I am so excited to be on committee again this year, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask ???? NU Dance love xxxx


PERFORMANCE SEC

Sophie Parker

Animal Science

Year 2

Hi, I'm Sophie Parker and I'm the Performance Sec of NUDance for this year. I'm studying Animal Science and am going in to my second year.

For all you new freshers I recommend coming along to as many classes as you can and trying out some new styles. Everyone is so friendly and I can guarantee you'll have an amazing time! 


COSTUME SECS

Elizabeth Green

Sustainable Building Technology

Masters

Hello! I'm Liz, one of your costume secs for this year along with the lovely Chrissie. I'll be studying for my post-grad masters in Sustainable Building Technology meaning this is my last year at NUDance.

In the past couple of years, I have met so many lovely people through the society and made some great friends. The one thing I regret is not pushing myself to come to dance classes and socials in 1st year. I was scared to come alone and worried about making friends, but it turned out that I was worried over nothing and I lost a year dancing my butt off and spending time with amazing people! So give it a go and don't miss out on being a part of this fabulous society! Looking forward to seeing new and old faces in the studio come September x

Chrissie Allan

Biotechnology

Year 3

Hey! I’m Chrissie a third year Biotech student and one of your two costume secs for this year. I have been dancing from a very young age taking part in competitions, shows, and exams growing up and have even been given the opportunity to teach when I am back home. Being a part of NUDance surrounded by so many amazing people and getting taught by incredible teachers has made me realise how much I love everything about dance and I definitely wouldn’t have survived the last two years without it!

I look forward to what this year brings, meeting you all and working alongside Liz creating your costumes for the year. See you all soon! Xx
