Your Current Executive

Elected every two years, the Club Executive works all year round to bring you the classes, workshops, and events you enjoy. Without their hard work, the Club wouldn’t exist, so if you see one of them, thank them for everything they do.

If you would like to join the Club Executive, we welcome you to contact us at


TJ Al-Himrary


TJ is an engineer with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Calgary. During the day, he is a consultant in rotating equipment. He joined the Club in 1992, when his girlfriend (now wife) asked him to join a dance class. TJ then went on to became a TA in 1993 and has worked as a TA in all the classes offered by the Club from level 1 to the level 3 or Advanced class. During that time, TJ worked with various professionals: Jojo Belmonte, Kim Donaghy, Michele Guimond, and Bryan Senn. TJ enjoys all dances but has a weak spot for Quickstep and Cha Cha. When he isn’t dancing, he enjoys motorcycling, playing Squash, and travelling. TJ would like to grow the Club, improve the quality of our offerings, and to help members build a solid foundation of dance to make it easier to later learn the more intricate patterns.

Sandra Hosler

Vice President

Sandra studied accounting in College and is currently working as a property manager. She got into dancing through a coworker who recommended dance as a great way to get out and get moving. Sandra had always wanted to dance, went with her coworkers to a class, and well, fifteen years later she’s still dancing. Sandra was first elected to the Club Executive in March 2008 and has been an active presence on the Executive since then. Her favorite dances are Waltz and East Coast Swing, and she tries to spend as much of her free time with her grandchildren as she can. Sandra believes that the club is unique and she would like to work towards keeping that alive and well for many years into the future. She would like to see the social side of the club continue to grow and is always looking for new ways to make the club as great as it can be.


Dan Wulff


Dan has a PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from Iowa State University in the United States. He is winding down his career as an academic at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Social Work but continues his professional writing and presenting. He and his wife Sally have been dancing together since 2005, starting in Louisville, Kentucky and now in Calgary. They became Canadian citizens in 2018 and thoroughly love their move to Canada. Dan is a new member on the Executive, serving as Promotions Director. He sees this as a challenging time with the COVID-19 pandemic changing almost everything, including dance lessons and connecting in our usual ways with our dance community. Dan believes that the Club can “step up” to this challenge and find ways to keep our love of ballroom dancing alive and stay safe at the same time.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, swimming, and Tai Chi.
