Dancer Relations

Dancers & Dancer Reps,

Our names are Cassi Dahms and Meredith Patenaude and we are the Co-Directors of Dancer Relations this year! We are your go to people if you want to get in contact with anyone on the Management Team about anything HuskyTHON related. Our main job is overseeing the position of Dancer Representatives whom each team elects.

Dancer Representatives are a liaison between the team they represent and all important and exciting information about HuskyTHON that needs to be spread. Dancer Representatives get to work closely with the child and gifted family from Connecticut Children's Medical Center that their team represents the night of, this includes putting together a gift for them the night of, making a poster that welcomes them to HuskyTHON and walking them down the tunnel when everyone arrives at HuskyTHON! Being a Dancer Representative is a great way to get involved with HuskyTHON in a leadership role, which could then lead to other positions. As Co-Directors we hold a monthly meeting with all the Dancer Representatives to talk about everything HuskyTHON related and ensure that everyone is as excited as we are to make this the best HuskyTHON UConn has ever seen!

If you have any questions in regards to anything dancer related please feel free to reach out to us!
