Ella Ticktin-Smith

Name: 
Ella Ticktin-Smith

Having led the History Society at my college, I have experience working within a committee, organising large groups of people, and ensuring that everyone feels comfortable completing the tasks required of them. Being part of a competition team this year has given me a good understanding of what it takes to produce a successful and enjoyable dance competition, and I am willing to devote as much time as is necessary to make sure that every aspect of Transcendence is of a high standard. I have developed excellent time management skills from juggling dance, volunteering, work experience, multiple societies and academic work throughout my school career and at university, and consequently I aim to be an active member of committee alongside as well as performing my specific duties as producer. I hope to introduce a greater element of audience participation in the event (I thought the dance-off at the Liverpool competition was a fun idea!) and I also want to try and make it more sustainable – for example, by considering where we source our merch and the ways in which we can reduce waste.

Seeing how everyone has bonded through events like TranscenDance really motivated me to run for this position. I highly respect all the hard work done by previous producers in making TranscenDance such a successful tradition, and I hope to continue this pride by having the opportunity to produce for you the 2019 TranscenDance.

As TranscenDance producer, I would aim at getting more universities involved through marketing TranscenDance as a celebration of dance. The role of TranscenDance Producer involves lots of planning, organisation and communication. My previous experience as the Managing Director of Young Enterprise in my secondary school has equipped me with comprehensive event management skills and the ability to deal with emergencies. My past production experience involves leading the organisation of annual whole-school Formals and charity fundraisers, raising over $100,000 HKD.

Working as a Freshers’ Rep this year, I have been involved in the running of the Dance Society Committee and assisted in the production of TranscenDance and Class Showcase. I believe my hands-on experience from this year would contribute to a smooth transition to the new committee and to make improvements happen.

Finally, thank you Dance Soc Family for such an amazing year!
