Super cool dancer Sarah is in her fourth year studying French and International Media and Communication studies. She spent last year working in a French primary school and eating excellent pastries. She is the president of NU:Dance, Nottingham University’s dance society, which boasts over 300 members and has won a ton of awards. You can also find Sarah modelling eco-friendly t-shirts on her boyfriend’s company website which sells ethical clothing (that isn’t ugly!).
Sarah Churchill-Slough- NU:Dance President
Tell me something interesting about yourself
My title isn’t actually ‘Miss’, it’s ‘Lady Sarah’, not because I’m a toff, someone bought it for me as a present! I’ve even got a certificate on my wall to prove it. I can’t wait to get my degree certificate with that on it!
What is the best thing about being the president of a society?
Being able to meet loads of people from the society and always working to make the society bigger and better.
Do you ever let all that power get to your head?
Well, my friends do call me El Presidente.
What events have the society got planned throughout this year?
We have our annual show in March which is going to be awesome. The theme this year is ‘Myths, Legends and Fantasy’ and we’ll have all styles of dance including ballet, jazz, hip-hop and street. This week (4th December to be exact) we’re chuffed to have our first collaborative charity dance ball which is a joint effort between all the university dance societies. Each society will be performing and every student at the university is welcome. We’re super excited!
You’re from the Isle of Wight. What’s it like to live there?
Contrary to popular belief, I don’t know everyone on the island. It’s brilliant because I can run to the beach in 30 seconds. And it’s not covered in rubbish. Most people will probably know the island because of its trendy festivals which I used to go to every summer.
How does it compare to Nottingham?
In Nottingham it takes me the same amount of time to walk to and from town as it would to drive across the Isle of Wight. I had never been to Asda and I had never heard of Nandos before I came to university!
What’s your dream job?
I’d love to be a freelance illustrator. Or a professional tea taster. I brought 1200 Yorkshire tea bags to our house this year!
