Name: Alice Lord
Committee Position: Secretary
Subject and Year: Biochemistry - 4th Year
Favourite Dance: Quickstep. I love how upbeat it is, and the way couples just fly across the floor.
Random Fact: My favourite film is Moulin Rouge.
Memorable YBLS Moment:
There are so many fab memories to choose from. I love comp days with everyone, especially in Blackpool. Despite the early mornings, we always have loads of fun. I was so proud of the whole team when we won Roses in York last year, and I was super thrilled when Katherine and I came first in Sheffield for the first time!!
Why did you join the society?
I joined the society because I've danced since I was 3 years old and wanted to continue through uni. The society seemed so friendly and I was really excited at the opportunity to get back into competing.
Why did you join the committee?
I have missed YBLS so much whilst being on my year in industry. I couldn't wait to come back to dance, and since being social sec in second year I knew joining the committee again would be a great way to get more involved.
What is your goal for the next year?
I'd love to see the comp team continue to grow. On a personal level, I've been very comp focused while I've been at YBLS so I'd like to spend more time improving my technique.
"Ballroom and latin dancing has been a passion of mine from a young age and YBLS has been a big part of my uni life. I really missed dancing and competing with YBLS whilst away on my placement year and am looking forward to coming back. I have already been on the committee as a social sec so already have an understanding of how the society works and want to give more to the society by taking on a larger role this year."
