Board Members

Behind the scenes at Swing in Utrecht, our board members weave the threads of swing dance expertise and passion. Get acquainted with the faces shaping our community.

Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, Charleston
Starting her dance journey as a child, she has tried many different dance styles over the years. She started to learn Lindy Hop and Charleston in 2018. Since then she is working on widening her repertoire with other Swing Dances. She likes to dance on any tempo, but has an unquestionable preference for fast songs. In her free time she's helping out the board as secretary.
I love smiles, happy accidents, theatrics
At first not knowing how to step on a beat, and replying to invitations for a dance with "are you sure?", Remy went through a wall of shame when he started out. Now he has been doing Swing Dancing for longer than he dares to admit. For Swing in Utrecht, Remy keeps a careful eye on the finances in the role of treasurer. Outside of dance, he protects the world from software bugs.
Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, Balboa, Slow Ball
Starting out with a serious fear of dancing, but a genuine love for vintage clothing and jazz music, it wasn’t easy when she began taking Lindy Hop classes in 2018. It didn’t take long to overcome that fear, supported by the lovely community and inspiring teachers. Now, dancing is her biggest hobby, and you can find her at almost every social. Her daily life she spends in a botanical garden, and does PR for SiU.
I love all swing dances, please don't make me pick
Sanne has been Swing Dancing since 2017 and immediately fell in love with it. She started with Lindy Hop, but she quickly learned to dance other Swing dances such as Shag and Solo Jazz. From the beginning Sanne has been active in the community as a volunteer, from organizing socials to organizing SwingDom, she has done it all. Currently she is the chair of the board, but also loves to help out wherever needed.
