Mair Edmunds - Treasurer
I started pole dancing in 2011 after deciding I wanted to try something new as well as improve my fitness and strength. I became treasurer as I'm good with numbers and wanted to get more involved with the club! I hope to keep improving my performance and look forward to representing the club this year.
Franke Butler - Health and Safety
I joined pole in 2010 when I first started university as I felt like trying something new. After my first lesson I caught the pole bug and have been going ever since. I was chair last year and I am so proud to see pole taking its first big steps especially with our first pole dance team last year. I am now health and safety as I still want the opportunity to be involved with pole and get others to join and gain the same confidence I have.
Sarah Greaves - Social Secretary
I joined UPPDC in September 2011 with no prior experience of pole dancing and I absolutely fell in love with it. I have my own pole in my room, and participated in the UPPDC showcase in March 2012 and the inter-university pole competition in Bristol in 2012 and hope to be even more involved with pole in 2012/2013.
