Commissioner internal affairs

Hello lovely people, my name is Sanne Koerhuis and this year I will be your Commissioner of Internal Affairs. From my 27 years of life experience I have been a Toes member for 5 years now. In these five years I not only danced as a lady, but also as a gent. I have many talents. In addition to the Toes, I'm completing my studies and working hard with children who have behavioral problems. In addition to all these fun things, I have a little bit of free time left and I mainly fill it in by playing games, meeting friends and when I have extra spare time left I will bake or cook all kinds of tasty things. I?m really looking forward to this year! If you have any questions, please contact me at
