Q: How long have you been dancing and what level are you now?
1.5 years. I dance at novice level
Q: On a scale of 1-4, would you be able to help someone with a move or steps if they were stuck? 1 being fairly useless because you don’t know the steps yourself and 4 being a dance professional
2- I will help out as much as I can
Q: What is your vice of choice?
I enjoy sneaking movie quotes into conversation, and occasionally I get stuck on a set quote for a while
Q: What degree do you study?
MEng – Mechanical Engineering with Automotive Design
Q: Do you manage to balance your degree alongside dancing well?
Yes. Even with the demanding schedule of an Engineering degree SUBLDS is a great way to unwind for me and having time off from the maths and physics, I’d say, helps me cope with the workload that a degree requires
Q: Give us your favourite dance top tip
If you, sort of, lung into your steps you can drive much further
Q: What is your favourite/ most entertaining memory with dancing with SUBLDS?
My experience at IVDC last year had its ups and downs, but it was also one of the most enjoyable. Getting to dance on such a prestigious dance floor and being surrounded by so many great people.
Q: What event do you look forward to this year in SUBLDS?
Either the Southampton Friendly or IVDC
Q: Why should people join the society? Give us your favourite reason
On top of all the great experiences at competitions, SUBLDS has a great social aspect too and everyone is so kind and friendly and welcoming.
