Hi everyone! Hope you are all well. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible for TOMORROW'S AGM!! Hopefully you've read both Hannah and Charlotte's messages regarding being a committee member for SXDance. The girls really have said it all:
*valuable life experience essential for a skillful and impressive C.V
*making changes to the club that YOU want to happen
* being a part of a close-knit group and making many new friends/meeting lots of new people
*getting know...n around uni/meeting and liaising with sports centre managers/vice chancellors (important people haha)
*continuing the success of SXD and maintaining our status of THE BIGGEST SPORTS CLUB ON CAMPUS YEOOOOO!
*developing as a person, gaining confidence, being respected in a position of authority
I realise some/most of you may find this a rather daunting thought (as the committee felt this time last year) But I must emphasise the life experience that is to be gained, as well as dancing each week/improving health and mental well-being...being part of a community. Reaping the many rewards which the club has to offer!
We would love everyone to run for a position! We need you to support and want to be a part of committee for SXDance. If this does not happen, there will simply be no club. If being on committee is simply out of the question for you then please still come along to vote! Your club and the people on committee are created around your votes.
ALSO a proud moment for this years committee - we have been shortlisted for sports club of the year which even to be shortlisted is a great achievement so thank you to everyone, committee and dancers for all your hard work this year and long may it continue
Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow! WATCH THIS SPACE FOR HANNAH'S POST OF VENUE! xxx
Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a well deserved Easter break and enjoying a break from uni. Some of our dancers returned to Essex yesterday after competing in a dance tour in Salou in Spain. We were up against some big universities, some of whom had considerably more dancers than ourselves. We placed first in Advanced Jazz and won runners up for best overall university. Many thanks and congratulations go to all dancers and supporters involved. Tour was an amazing experi...ence so thank you guys! Also - as we are all so busy jetting off here there and everywhere - a massive well done and thank you to everyone who took part/ danced/ helped in the show 'The Rhythm of Life.' The show was a massive success thanks to all your hard work so thank you to everyone who took part. Have a fun and safe Easter break guys, you'll be hearing from us soon...xxx
