Below are our club's officers for the 2013-2014 academic year. We encourage any of you who would like to help shape the vision and direction of the club to consider participating in some capacity. The officers meet each Sunday afternoons at 2pm in the LaFortune Student Center to discuss the club's activities. All dues-paying members are invited to voice their opinions or concerns for the first 30 minutes of each meeting.
Dillon is a senior chemical engineering and mathematics double major from Dallas (most definitely a baseball town). Dillon enjoys musicals, Rangers baseball, and even a bit of blackjack and Texas Hold'Em every now and again. He served as Treasurer for ND Ballroom in 2011-12 and as Co-Vice President in 2012-13. Even though he will soon graduate, Dillon does not foresee this being his last year dancing, his newest passion. He looks to expand the club's activities by further incorporating the club with the South Bend community, as well as increasing interaction with other ballroom clubs to foster intercollegiate ballroom friendships! He can't wait for what's in store for another great year of Notre Dame Ballroom!

Savannah is a sophomore mechanical engineer who loves being at Notre Dame, especially in a fantastic quad in the hottest dorm on campus (PE). She is from the Maryland countryside north of Baltimore. She loves riding horses, traveling, and of course dancing! She has danced ballet and modern for years and has been a part of Dance Company and Ballroom Club here at Notre Dame since the beginning of freshman year. She is thrilled to be your Vice President and working with Dillon, Joe, and Jorge to make this club full of family and fun!

Jorge is a sophomore SCPP and anthropology double major ready to dive in to everything that being treasurer of this wonderful club entails. He has been dancing since the age of three, but did not start ballroom dancing until last year. He enjoys watching TV (maybe a little too much) and eating in his free time, and cannot wait to start ballroom dancing again this year!

My name is Joe Pautsch and I am excited to be your secretary for the 2013-14 year! I am a sophomore architecture student from Sioux City, Iowa, and have only been involved with ballroom since last year, but competed in show choir in high school, even being a Showchoir Camps of America counselor this past summer. When I'm not dancing or in studio, I am a Chicago Bears fan, playing Super Smash Bros., or reading autobiographies (my favorite is Andy Rooney's My War ). My favorite style is a tie between Viennese Waltz and Swing.
