Why did I join DH? Dance has always been a big part of my life, and with DH, I have been able to keep it as such. Over the years, I’ve come to believe in the things that DH and its members stand for – a passion and commitment towards dance, a willingness to learn, a warm and encouraging atmosphere, a group of friends, and a family. DH is more than just a dance club, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

Why did I join DH? I wanted to take more dance classes and do performances while studying in university. DH has always had great instructors and was a gateway for me to get into the dance community.

Why did I join DH? Well…
At first I was afraid, I was petrified! I thought I couldn’t dance like these people by my side. But then we spent so many nights dancing to our favorite songs, and we grew strong, and learned how to dance along, and now we’re here! Part of this amazing DH legacy and family.
Social CoordinatorFavourite dance style: Hip Hop
Why did I join DH? I joined Dh with no dance experience. I ran track all throughout highschool and middle school so needless to say I ran in circles for hours. I was actually dragged into a free week class of Dh by jasmine, our current president, in our first year. It was fun and decided to sign up for membership. At Dh, I made some of my closest friends and wanted to give back to Dh and help give the same experience To others that Dh have to me. So yeah…that is all
