Meet the Execs!

As a student-led organization, Dance Horizons depends on the time and hard work of many different students. A huge thank you to all volunteers, dancers, organizers, and instructors for their help in bringing Dance Horizons to where it is today. We would also like to take this time to give a huge thank you to all the executives who work all year long to keep the organization running!

Why did I join DH? I was looking for a place to continue dance when I moved to BC and the Dance Horizon family’s awesomeness was unmet by any other. The club members are all so warm and there are so many different style’s; anyone can try anything.

Why did I join DH? Well… 
Ever since I saw the DH members perform at Jumpstart 2014, I knew that I had to be a part of DH when I would start my UBC first year experience later that fall. After becoming acquainted with DH members through DHC, making my own dance group called OHMY!, and eventually being a part of the DH team when I became a DH representative, I figured out along the way that being a part of the DH Executive Team would fulfill a small dream of mine. I love dancing and being able to help out the dance community by promoting and letting others grow into better dancers makes me feel out of this world!

Why did I join DH? I love how dance connects people–there is something powerful in all kinds of dance that could somehow touch the very core of both the dancers on stage and the audience watching them dance. I am also here for the music, the laughs, and this amazing family that is getting bigger day by day

Why did I join DH?  I’ve always wanted to join the dance community, but my friends never had an interest of it. Upon entering UBC, I told myself to join a dance club. I was deciding on which dance club I should join, and the gifs from the DH newsletter won me over so here I am.

Why did I join DH? When I first came to university, I was missing dance a lot. When Vanka, our current videographer, told me about Dance Horizons, she encouraged (read: dragged) me into a class to give it a try. I went along with it, but it turned out to be fun, so I kept coming back for more!!

Why did I join DH? I’ve always had interest in dance but never the opportunity to learn such a wide range of dance styles until DH! Also, DH was such a welcoming community which I now consider as family!

Favourite dance style: Ballet
Why did I join DH? For an uprooted studio-trained dancer, DH had the widest offerings and the best way to keep up with holistic training. Little did I know how passionate, diligent, and creative the members of this club are – constantly seeking to push boundaries and grow as dancers, but never passing up on an opportunity to have fun. In other words, the community keeps me here!

Why did I join DH? Was interested in dancing but I’ve never done any before so I decided to try it out in university. It was something very out of my comfort zone but the open and friendly atmosphere in DH helped me grow out of my shell :3. Over time I got more involved and slowly found myself being a part of the DH family :D

Why did I join DH? Dance horizons makes dancing just as fun as it used to be when I twirled around off beat in my ballet class as a kid.

Why did I join DH? Always found myself getting too into a song whenever I’m studying or just about any other time my headphones are plugged in. Dancing all out like no one is watching is incredibly fun so I might as well get better at it right? (maybe then people will want to watch!)

Why did I join DH?  I joined DH because I’M OBSESSED WITH DANCE and will not settle for just one style. The club offered me the opportunity to practice, perform and learn something new. Overall, it has been ridiculously fun.
