Swing

Here's a brief introduction to each of us on committee, with a little bit about each of our roles. All of us can be contacted at info@swingsoc.co.uk.

President - Catherine O'Leary

A bit about me: I started swing dance last September with Swing Soc, and its taken over my life a little bit. I love the social aspect, and that it's universal - I was able to turn up to dances The Netherlands and just join in. I used to take ballet lessons and play musical instruments, but that background was more classical, I love the relative freedom of swing, with no routines and more chance to express yourself. It's just really fun! As President, I'm the person in charge of the administration of the society. It is my responsibility to sort out room bookings, organise a Fresher's fair stall, set goals for the year ahead and attend the regular society council meetings.

General Secretary - Emily Tregale
About me: I joined SwingSoc in September last year and ever since I’ve been in love with its sense of community and the fun, social nature of swing dancing. In short, I care about swing and want to see it live on! As the General Secretary of SwingSoc, I'm responsible for taking minutes at meetings and sending out the society's newsletters and emails.

Treasurer - Emma Chatterton
About me: I started swing dancing in September last year. I really enjoy Swing and have loved meeting so many new people; from the university Swing Society, to the wider Nottingham scene, to people all around the world at national and international events. I love how, once you know the basics of swing, you can dance with anyone and you have the freedom to make up the choreography as you go along. As treasurer, I am in charge of the society's finances, so I apply for funding and make sure we don't spend too much money. I am also in charge of membership fees and collecting money at classes.
