Michelle Dolder
Alara Kopuz
Being on committee and working with such challenging conditions this year has made me appreciate what it means to be a part of UCL DanceSoc. I have loved seeing the passion and dedication from our members come together and would love the opportunity to play a role in getting the society back to its pre-covid state. As a Psychology student myself, I really enjoy communications and the organizational side involved in running a society. Thus, I have always involved myself in leadership roles such as being Vice President in my High-school MUN club where I learnt what it meant to be the key point of contact for a team and how to manage weekly meetings. I also gained a lot of experience being Liaison Officer this year during a period of extensive challenges where we had to be flexible and quick in making decisions. Being on committee has allowed me to understand the dynamics of the relationships between the committee roles and has given me more insight into what it would take to take on a larger role in committee. If I was elected, I would aim to take into account not only previous years feedback but also make committee more approachable to feedback from our members year-round. I look forward to forming a portal of communication for the society to ease adapting to our members needs as they require them. Finally, I am keen to facilitate communication within the committee and stay on top of admin work to provide members with the best experience we can offer them.
Rebecca Kumar
Hi everyone! I’m Rebecca, a 2nd-year Econ student. I started my university journey in the best possible way by finding this welcoming family and a sense of belonging I so deeply cherish. I’d love to end my journey doing as much as I can for this community that has given me so much.

I think that I would be a good fit for VP because I am:

WELL-ORGANISED: One big responsibility this year is reorganising the costume cupboard. I’ll work with the Tech Officer to implement a digitised borrowing system, increasing efficiency and ensuring all costumes are accounted for. With my experience digitising an expenditure system as school treasurer, along with my patience and organisational skills, you can have faith that I’ll be able to get this done efficiently.

PROACTIVE: With lower participation due to everything shifting online, I’ll prioritise making Dance Soc an even more welcoming and exciting place! I’ll increase publicity of freshers’ events and the 24hr show at Freshers’ Fair, engage guest choreographers to conduct masterclasses and collaborate with the Music Society to engage a larger audience.

POSITIVE & APPROACHABLE: The uncertainty around COVID is stressful and it can be demoralising when plans have to change. My optimism (those who know me will tell you how smiley I am!) and my deeply empathetic nature make it easy to approach me, and will serve the society well. I’ll always be happy to lend a listening ear/have a random chat about anything you want!
Emma McEvaddy
Hey, I’m Emma and I’d love to be your Vice President for the next academic year! Dance soc has been such an incredible aspect of my first-year and I’ve had so much fun boogying in my room so would love to get even more involved next year.
As VP I will ensure that dance soc remains a welcoming and friendly environment to make sure that everyone feels comfortable, whether they may be a complete beginner to dance or have been dancing since birth. I’d definitely consider myself an organised person and this will be massively helpful to me in the role, especially when needing to complete admin jobs, sorting out the mess that is the costume cupboard and producing the 24hr show. In general, I will do my best to keep the society running smoothly.
Being a Frep this year, I’ve had vital experience on the committee so I have a clear understanding of the ‘behind the scenes’ of dance soc. This has prepared me really well to take on a larger role next year as I’ve developed my teamwork, communication and leadership skills which are essential for the VP role. On top of this, I have also massively developed my time management skills this year, making me well equipped to balance the general comm duties and the added responsibilities of VP with uni work and my other commitments.
