David Ren

President

Joining the UADC in my first year because of its vibrant community, I stayed to promote social dancing as an all season lifelong sport. I am in my 3rd year of mechanical engineering and an avid rock climber and snowboarder. Appreciative of the lifelong friends I have made through the UADC, I am happy to assist with the organization of incredible classes and social functions. The club is fun regardless of your dance experience. Novices are welcome.

VP Internal

I am Chen and I am a 3rd year business student. I started to learn dancing this year and I really enjoy it. The dance club is an amazing social platform where I met a lot of people who come from different background but all passionate about dancing! As VP internal my goal is to work together with instructors, TAs, and the board to provide quality dance classes and amazing social activities for the community!

Grace Silver

Secretary

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. I have since switched roles to VP External, but I decided to return to the Secretary role in my third year with the executive team.

Zoé Saulnier

Social Director

Hi my name is Zoé and I am a 2nd year psychology student. I joined the UADC, and subsequently started my dance career, in the fall of 2017. During that semester I realized that few things are quite as stress-busting and fun as dancing with a great group of people. This realization spurred me to get more involved with the club by becoming Social Director.
