PRESIDENT | Natalie Chionh
Styles: Ballroom, Latin, Salsa, Bachata, Swing, Broadway, Argentine Tango, Zouk, Hip Hop, New Vogue, Jazz, Ballet & Lyrical
Bubble tea enthusiast (read: not an addict), lover of fluffy animals, international woman of mystery. Natalie has been dancing since the age of 6, her favourite styles currently include Standard Ballroom, Latin Ballroom, Broadway, Zouk and the Chicken Dance🐓.
Natalie lives (and dies) by the motto "bubble tea solves everything". If you need to contact Natalie and she is not at her usual haunts, room 304 at 757 Swanston st, or Laser Room at the Sports Centre, you may be able to lure her to you with puppies.
Quote of the year:
"hot showers are great, french showers I hate" - seriously, figure it out.
VICE-PRESIDENT | Julie Lloyd
Styles: Ballroom, Latin, Salsa, Swing & Broadway
Julie is a musical nerd, Pokemon nerd, and a bird nerd. She loves all styles of dance and is a Ginger Rogers wannabe. She enjoys listening and dancing to music with Wally, her pet budgie (he likes cha-cha and aerials). After a long year of lockdown, Julie has never been more eager to go outside and perform.
SECRETARY | Sam HoffmanN
Styles: Salsa, Bachata, Swing, Hip Hop, Ballroom & Latin
After deciding robots were cool in high school, Sam travelled from Perth to Unimelb to Study Mechatronics with a side of Computing, which he is in his second year of. Although he has just started dancing at MUDC he is backed up with many years of experience of flailing around the house to loud music when no one is home. Sam enjoys trying new things (and dance styles), along with Reading, hiking and Sailing.
TREASURER | Sophie Wang
SALES & MARkETING EXEC | Sage agius-giddings
Styles: Ballroom, Latin, Salsa, Bachata & New Vogue
Sage has been dancing since she was four, and has been doing ballroom styles since the age of 15! She is currently dancing Salsa and Bachata but is looking forward to picking up other styles next semester!
Sage enjoys reading, tea, sitting by the fire in winter, and listening to music, preferably all at the same time!
Events coordinator | Abigail Campbell-Young
Styles: Contemporary & Ballet
Abigail has been dancing a diverse range of styles for as long as she can remember. However, if she had to pick a signature style it would be contemporary. She loves the way dance can tell a story, bring music to life or just be for fun. Whether competitive or social she is willing to give every dance style a go, and get technical with it of course. When not dancing (i.e. rarely) she studies biomed and chemistry.
EVENTS COORDINATOR | Rebecca (Zishan) Lia
PERFORMANCE COORDINATOR | Lily Gao
Styles: Latin, Salsa, Bachata, Zouk, Contemporary & Hip Hop
Lily loves music and considers dancing such a fun way of musical engagement and expression. As a regular member of MUDC since 2019, Lily dances Latin and Salsa and is interested in exploring different styles. When not dancing you can find her reading books, dreaming about travelling to new places, or getting ready for the next movie marathon.
PERFORMANCE COORDINATOR | Yufei (Angel) Huang
Yufei (aka. Angel), was first introduced to dance through ballet before a short stint with Chinese dance. She is at her happiest when learning new choreographies and performing, as she believes dance synchronises the mind and body. Currently, she is a third year biomed student who enjoys Latin dance (and shuffle dance hehe :p).
IT OFFICER | Charlotte Jones
Styles: Ballroom, Latin & Swing
Currently a third year science student, Charlotte is an adventurous soul who is always looking to try something new. She joined MUDC in 2019 and particularly enjoys the styles of Ballroom and Latin. When not dancing, Charlotte also enjoys bushwalking, travelling, reading, stand-up paddleboarding and spending time with her numerous pets (two cats, a dog, rabbit and bird).
GC | ANNA Harutyunyan
Styles: Salsa & Bachata
Anna is a general committee member and one of the very few (perhaps only?) PhD students in the committee. She is originally from Armenia. Her favourite dance styles are Salsa and Bachata. The things she loves in the order of importance are: science, cats, dancing, Star Wars, more cats, awkward conversations, travelling, choreographing, and of course, cats.
