Committees

Within our association, we have several committees. On this page we introduce them to you! Would you like to join a committee? Mail to internal_affairs@wubda.nl!

Activity Committee

We are the Activity Committee, also known as the AC! We aim to organize a few small activities each period, such as karaoke, board games evening, pub-quizzes and more! Keep an eye on the calendar to see which activities are coming up. We would like to see you at one of our activities! All members are welcome to join. The Activity Committee consists of the following members: Lars Huijboom (Chair), Nadine Fikke (Treasurer), Elwin De Blauwer (Secretary), Suus Naalden (Photo-bomber) and Annika Berkelaar (Drink Taster). If you have any questions feel free to ask us or contact us via text or email to activities@wubda.nl!

Event Committee

We are the Event Committee. While the Activity committee organizes drinks, member dinners and some great activities, we organize a smaller number of bigger events. These events include the cocktail party, which is a fancy night out, and the family day, where you can show your new dance moves to the whole family. We work hard to contribute to your exciting student life! See you soon at our events! The Event committee consists of 5 members right now: Jasmijn de Jong (chair), Mark de Haas (secretary), Bas Zonjee (treasurer), Polina Surovtseva (master of drinks) and Leonie Nijs (master of snacks). If you have any questions about the committee or our events, don’t hesitate to ask by approaching any of our committee members after dance class, or by mailing to: events@wubda.nl.

DanCie

We are the newest addition to WuBDA, the DanCie. We organize all the ballroom dance related activities, starting with the Socials and the Bootcamps. Socials are fun evenings with lots of dance music and great people to dance with. A Bootcamp is a long (+- 3 hours) dance lesson focused on one principle (ballroom or latin) where we go in depth on technique, often with the help of a short routine. For these Bootcamps we bring in teachers from outside WuBDA to get new expertise to our Association. We are also looking into other Dance activities to organize. The DanCie currently consists of 5 members: Indy van Grinsven (Chair), Floor Cromjongh (Secretary), Helena Donner (Treasurer), Polina Surovtseva, and Daan Engberts. For any and all questions, you can mail us at dancie@wubda.nl

Gala Committee

Ballroom dance galas are the best galas! A magical ambience, ballroom and Latin music, and people dancing around the floor the whole night! Galas are the perfect opportunity to meet other dance-enthusiasts. Every year, WuBDA organizes a gala for dancers of all student dance associations in the Netherlands! Do you want to know which gala is planned next? Go take a look at the Gala Page. The current Gala Committee has 5 members: Indy van Grinsven (chair), Vera van der Maas (Secretary), Suzette de Groot (Treasurer), and Ilke van den Hoek.  They, together with some people who help on the gala evening itself, organize the coming WuBDA gala. Do you have any questions for the Committee or do you want help with organizing the Gala? Please approach a Gala Committee member or mail to gala@wubda.nl.

ShowCie

The ShowCie organizes a wide variety of activities like workshops, shows and dance-related activities. While it sounds like a task for advanced dancers, that’s not the case. The activities require more organizational skills. The ShowCie doesn’t need to do the workshops themselves, but they need to arrange that someone is giving a workshop and help out in any way possible. So, you don’t need any dance experience for these events. Normally they ask other (student) dance associations for a workshop. Examples of dance-related activities can be things like a lip dup, but you are free to come up with different ideas. Putting together a show is more complicated, But a high-level show is not necessary. You can also think of an end of the year show just for the members. The Showcie consists of 4 members. We have Mark de Haas (Chair) and Luuk Rook. Do you have any questions for the ShowCie, or do you want to join the committee? Mail to shows@wubda.nl.

xTDS

The xTDS is the committee that involves itself with the NTDS & ETDS. The committee keeps a close eye on everything related to the upcoming NTDS or ETDS. They pass on information regarding the event, approach members to sign-up for the competitions and they answer all questions members have. Thanks to the xTDS, WuBDA is able to form a team for the competitions, but they also make sure the team presentation is prepared and everyone gets a checklist for what they need to take with them. At the NTDS and ETDS themselves, they make sure everyone finds their place to sleep, gets their back number and knows when to dance where. Currently Lucas Hulsman, Jasmijn de Jong and Andrea van der Eerden are the Teamcaptains of the xTDS. Contact them if you have any questions. Hopefully you join them at the next NTDS or ETDS xtds@wubda.nl.

VakanCie

We are the Vakancie! Together we organize amazing and memorable trips for members of WuBDA. Every year we will be working hard to organize something fun for all our members to enjoy. We hope to see you join us on one of our sunny trips this year! The VakanCie consists of 5 amazingly talented and passionate members: Mark de Haas (Chair), Polina Surovtseva (Secretary),  Bas Zonjee (Treasurer), Floor Cromjongh, and LarsHuijboom. If you have any question with regard to our activities, please do not hesitate to contact us on Whatsapp! You can also send us an e-mail through: vakancie@wubda.nl.
