We are Katjana and Marta and we will be the team captains of our amazing teams this year. CUDT has been a big part of our Cambridge experience and we decided that this was our chance to give something back. We are very excited to lead you through practice and competitions as a strong, successful and motivated team. Together with our amazing committee and coaches, we will make sure that every dancers will have a good time on team and we cannot wait to meet our new dancers. Please drop us an email, if you want to join or know more about the team. We are looking forward to meet you at trials 😀
Second Team Co-Captains
We will be the overall team captains but also this year’s second team captains! Yay! It will be an awesome year.
Ex-beginner’s ourselves, we are now responsible for the Beginner’s on CUDT. Our goal is to make them into the best dancers they can be and maintain our status as the most successful Beginner’s Team in the country. Rob is a third year vet from Selwyn and Emma is a third year lawyer from Christ’s.
My name is Sarah and I am this year’s Treasurer for CUDT. I joined the team as a beginner during my first year of university and progressed up to First team in my second year. I study French and Italian and have just spent the last year in Parma, Italy teaching English and indulging in Italian food and wine, whilst learning to salsa dance on the side! (Hoping my tan will last long enough to avoid fake tan for a while…) I can’t wait to come back to the team and get dancing again!
Hi, my name is Hendrik and I will be in charge of organising lessons with our coaches throughout the coming year as CUDT’s lesson secretary – so be prepared for weekly emails. Before joining CUDT and the Human, Social and Political Sciences tripos (short: HSPS or HusPus, the debate is intense) last year, I danced in a Latin formation team for three years.
I have always enjoyed individual styles of dance until I tried Ballroom and Latin dancing at Cambridge. I have since been hooked and have now been competing with CUDT for 5 years. As Publicity Officer I oversee all of CUDT’s performances. We are always happy to perform at dinners, BOPs and any other occasion which you’d like to liven up, so please get in touch to arrange something!
Hey guys welcome to CUDT! We are Kelvin and Rachel, your social secretaries this dancing year. Kelvin is a second year medic at Caius and started dancing last year as a beginner on team. Rachel is a third year classicist at Caius having started as a beginner on team in her first year. We feel that CUDT is a place to belong for all our young and talented dancers, and we will do our best to keep up the happy vibes. Kelvin will make sure you are all fitted nicely into good dancing shoes, wandering around town all year sporting personalised CUDT stash and Rachel will be running a series of socials throughout the year to allow people on different teams to socialise with one another and strengthen our CUDT family ethos. We hope to see you there soon! Xx
Hi, my name is Tessa, and I’m the costume mistress for this year! I joined the CUDT Beginner’s team last year and fell in love with dancesport immediately. My job is to take care of costumes, and help everyone look their best when they walk onto the dance floor. Whether it’s questions about what you’re allowed to wear, how to do your hair and makeup, or how tanned you should be, I’m always available for advice and an honest opinion so that you can dance your best while looking your best!
Jasmin and Ed are our welfare officers, meaning they’re here to support everyone on CUDT. Their aim is to help everyone have a great experience on CUDT, where every member of the community feels as comfortable and supported as possible. They’re here to listen in confidence, and if needed to give advice or act as an advocate for anyone who’s having a difficult time . They can also provide information about the wide range of support and resources available in Cambridge.
Hello! My name is Daphne and I’m responsible for organising internal competitions and external competition entry. I started dancesport last year with the most amazing beginner partner. When not dancing, I can usually be found studying medicine, making spreadsheets, doing theatre or in a split.
