The Executive Board (or E-board for short) is the core of our organization. These members have committed themselves to creating legislation, programming events and promotional campaigns that best serve the club and its members, providing them with the chance to see and participate in ballroom dance’s many forms and varieties. It’s the sole purpose of the E-board to see our member’s ideas come to fruition and this organization grow better every year.
The 2015-2016 E-board
Meet the Spring 2015 E-Board
President: Sheetal Gandhi, Year 4. A behavioral neuroscience student imported directly from India, Sheetal spends her free time drinking Chai and smiling too much. Fair warning: she just might be the happiest, most energetic person on earth... and she has an affinity for endlessly nagging people about their arm styling (but it's out of love, and we're all very grateful in the end).
Vice President: Emily Atwater, Year 4. Coming from a town less than an hour away from Boston, Emily is a behavioral neuroscience student who's slightly obsessed with learning about diseases. She started dancing as a sophomore and likes paso doble an irrational amount. She also enjoys gluing rhinestones to anything and everything (watch out-- you're next!).
Treasurer: Paul Maschhoff, Year 4. Hailing from just north of Boston, he has returned from honing his skills in the International styles in the heartland of Europe and is ready to bring it all back to the club. This ChemE loves flying around the floor with quickstep and would love to take you for a spin in hustle.
Secretary: Erica Dunn, Year 2. New Hampshire native Erica may have only started dancing last fall, but she hasn’t really stopped since. She may not have picked a major yet, but she has picked samba and American rumba as her favorite dances, which she considers nearly as important. She's excited for her second year at Northeastern, which aside from classes will be full of dancing, movies, and... probably a few movies involving dancing!
Social Chair: Kathleen Newcomer, Year 3. A middler studying Computer Science/Biology, Kathleen is originally from the midwest. She has been competing with ballroom since the start of her freshman year, and her favorite dances are all of them. When she’s not dancing she really enjoys baking, outdoor activities, and playing really nerdy games with her friends.
Co-Captain: Matt Kolosick, Year 3. Matt is a third-year computer science major/ American Sign Language minor whose dancing he might describe as “decent” (but everyone else would call awesome). His talent for teaching is evident, and his advice is often as entertaining as it is helpful (ex: imagery involving beach balls and awkward middle school dances).
Co-Captain: Katie Krajovic, Year 3. A linguistics and computer science student from Philadelphia, Katie's dance skills are insanely impressive, bordering on intimidating. But don't let that stop you from coming to her for help! She's always got useful tips and tricks, and there’s no question that we’re all better dancers for it.
