This is part of Das Tor’s ongoing series, “Club Spotlight,” in which different Thunderbird clubs describe their mission, goals, and why students should consider joining their group.
Thunderbird Global Moves is the latest new club at Thunderbird. The club was formed by Nuria, Robson, Veronica, and Juily. Last semester was the first time the club officially launched its activities.
At Club Day, I remember this was the very first club that I joined. I was so fascinated by the dance forms they were going to teach as I read about them on Club Day that I made up my mind to attend the very first class: Salsa. Learning salsa in that class was a completely new experience for me. This was my first experience learning salsa, especially with people from Latin America. Not only did I learn salsa, but I also got a chance to connect with people.
There was a Bollywood class, too, and I am from India. There, even though I was not an instructor, I got a chance to teach fellow T-birds some Bollywood dance moves. I believe irrespective of the dance form taught, having the experience of learning a dance from your own T-bird friends was something that connected me to the club. After this event, I joined the club as a Director. The reason I joined Global Moves was to make more people connect with each other through their hobbies.
We have a collaborative, efficient, and affable team at Global Moves. Right now, we are preparing for the regional nights to be held this week at Thunderbird headquarters. We have facilitated some performances for the upcoming regional nights, which I hope you all will enjoy. In April, we also have scheduled two classes in the ASU gym with instructors from Thunderbird. We’ll provide news about these soon.
With the upcoming regional nights, we also are opening our director positions. Please see here to apply. Don’t miss this opportunity to join us in sharing our culture and Thunderbird spirit through the universal language of dance!
