Executive

The UVic Ballroom, Latin, and Swing Club is run by a group of volunteer students. They hire professional instructors to teach classes, they plan events and workshops. If you are interested in joining the executive and helping run the club, please talk to one of the executives or email us at ballroom@uvicdance.com!

President - Adair Ng

This will be my fourth year as a member of the UVBLSC and my third as an executive. Over the past few years, I have met so many wonderful people, challenged myself by joining the UVic Salsa Team, and just had a lot of fun! I hope I will have the chance to welcome you to our club this year.

Vice President - Maya Pereira

Despite being involved in jazz band before joining the Ballroom club, I’d never learned how to dance to the music I’d so often played. In my first year of university I found the club to be a great way to meet new people, step out of my comfort zone, and become part of a warm community. There’s something in dance for everyone, in addition to a skill that surpasses the ages.

Treasurer - Will Beckett

I am a 3rd year Computer Science and Math student, and have been with the club since I got to UVic. Dance has been a lot of fun and a great way to meet people. I started with ballroom in high school, but have branched out into Swing and Salsa thanks to the club.

Equipment Manager - Chris Friedrich

I am in my third year studying Astronomy at UVic and already have a bachelors in English Lit. I joined the club this past spring and have enjoyed learning how to dance.
