3rd board of ssvw WuBDA
Chairman: Mart Kroon
Hi, my name is Mart, I’m 20 years old and since the summer of ’16, I am active as a board member of WuBDA. I was treasurer first, from March onwards I am the chairman of WuBDA. I never danced before I moved to Wageningen a year ago. I think that ballroom and latin dancing is something everybody should be able to do, and that is one of the reasons I started doing this. And I thought it would be a lot of fun, and it turned out is was! I would like to show as many students as possible how much fun it is to dance, and how incredibly classy it is to be able to, for instance, ballroomdance with someone at a gala.
Secretary: Salomé Rinzema
Hi, my name is Salomé and I started ballroom dancing at the beginning of the academic year in 2016. When I moved to Wageningen for my biology bachelor, I was planning on joining a sports association, but had no idea what would be the best choice for me. During the AID, I participated in the workshop organized by WuBDA and instantly fell in love with dancing. I hope by joining the board I can help more students to find out how fun it can be to be able to dance.
Treasurer: Irene Lambregts
Hi, my name is Irene and I’m the treasurer for WuBDA. I am from Idaho, USA, and I am a masters student studying animal nutrition here at Wageningen University. I started ballroom dancing when I was 15 and took my first professional lessons at 17 while living here in the Netherlands in my last year of high school. Since then I’ve taught beginners workshops for two years before returning here to the Netherlands. Aside from ballroom dancing, I love to be outside doing just about anything or being inside reading, writing and playing video games. I am excited for the prospects to come with WuBDA and look forward to sharing them with all of you!
Public Relations: Andrea van der Eerden
Hi, my name is Andrea, I’m 20 years old, I study Nutrition and Health and I started ballroom dancing in 2015. The love for dancing started when my friend took me to a dancing party. I absolutely loved it!! Seeing the amazing figures and dances that they were doing, there was nothing in the world I wanted to learn so badly.
When I heard that there was a ballroom dance association in Wageningen, I really wanted to join. Besides dancing at WuBDA, I also dance at a dancing school at home. In the future, I would like to dance minor competitions!
