David Ren

President

I’m a mechanical engineering student and former competitive ballroom dancer. In my nonexistent free time you’ll find me climbing in PAWS or snowboarding in the mountains. I'm here to promote an all season lifelong sport - social dance. Welcome to the U of A Dance Club!

Robin Tang

VP Internal

Hello, my name is Robin and I am a fourth-year chemistry student. I started my dancing career with the UADC in September 2016. In October that year, I volunteered as the Social Director and I was selected as the VP Internal in April 2017. In my free time, I like to work-out, dance, and fly. Aircrafts that I operate are Cessna 172s and the Mooney M20D.

Grace Silver

VP External

Hello, my name is Grace Silver and I am a second year Pharmacology student. I first started dancing in 2010, and danced competitively for several years. I joined the UADC in Fall 2016 and was immediately taken in by the fun and social atmosphere, so I decided to become more involved, joining the executive team as the Secretary. At the last general meeting, I switched roles to the VP External.

Andy Ton

Treasurer

Hi, my name is Andy. I am a second year student in business. I started dancing when I was in grade two and danced competitively for around four years. After learning about the dance club, my interest in ballroom dancing rekindled as the social aspects were quite appealing. I enjoy playing the piano, soccer, running, as well as flying in my spare time.
