I have been dancing for four years now and know for a fact that dancing is a sport. Dancers practice everyday to improve like other sports. I have danced before but it was not as serious until I joined Color Guard my freshman year. Color Guard was mainly contemporary and ballet. I was really stiff at the time due to the fact that I had only have done hip-hop and hard-hitting dances. When my first season was over, I came to love contemporary and ballet more than hip-hop and hard-hitting dances. My sophomore year, I became a squad leader with only season's worth of experience in guard. Color Guard is during the fall which is when we are with the Marching Band. Winter Guard is during the spring and we are by ourselves performing in the gym, I started off in Winter Guard. My first season was
I want you to know that school is pretty easy for me. Last year I was a part of National Junior Honor Society. My grade point average was a 3.6. I was ninth in my class. I like to play sports. Baseball, basketball, and tennis are what I play. I play number one doubles in tennis. My partner is Dalton Becker. My position in baseball is second base. I am not playing basketball this year. Hunting and miscellaneous activities are what I do in my free time . Lunch and PE are my favorite classes of the day. PE is one of my favorites, because we get to prepare for a sport. I lift and work on baseball in PE. I am a decent to the average writer. Mr. Harper told me I was a good writer, but that is suspect at times. I like vocab, it is
Have you ever grown to dislike something that you once loved? And I don’t mean something you liked that one day you just got bored of. I mean you loved this it was you whole life, then over time you just built up a hatred for this once great thing. For me this would be football. I still love to watch and talk about football, but I could never play the sport again. Keep in mind I finished out high school football, but I stopped liking it years ago. I think that is because during football I have built friendships and connections that will last a lifetime.
As a proud member of the Mercedes Tiger Band color guard and drill team, a lifetime goal for me would be to join a marching band and/or college dance team. Coming into high school I never thought my passion would be to be performing in front of hundreds of people every Friday Night for four years. It has become my passion and it brings me much joy to perform and have the time of my life on that football field.
When it comes to the work force, we have many choices of what we can do, but, it is up to us to figure out what we want to do for the rest of our lives. My career goal is to become an Adult Psychiatrist, I want to be an Adult Psychiatrist because I would like to help people who cannot help themselves. I believe I would be a good fit for this position because I feel I that I have quite a few of the characteristics necessary to help people who need it the most. I would work to get the patient back into the world and to be a fully-functioning member of society. I would likely work at a psychiatric hospital because the people there would need the help the most, due to either being forced to be there, or they are
Ever since I was little, being on Clearfield High School drill team was always a big dream of mine since I saw them perform at multiple of their schools football and basketball games. My parents took me to my first dance class when I was three years old and ever since I fell in love with that particular sport. I was different from all of the other kids at my school because they always got to play with the other kids from school and I always ended up having dance, but I didn’t mind because that was where most of my really close friends was at my childhood dance studio.
The words “rhythm tap” can be defined as a type of tap dancing that focuses on the acoustic rather than the aesthetic. The emphasis of rhythm tap is based upon what the dancer articulates with his or her sounds rather than the way the performer looks when executing those sounds. The term rhythm tap is used to differentiate between this expressive style of dance with the Broadway or show style of tap that most individuals are accustomed to seeing on stage. Rhythm tap usually tends to be more grounded and often incorporates choreographed movement of body parts other than the feet. But ultimately, it is the sounds that are at the center of this style of dance. Two famous rhythm tappers include Clayton “Peg Leg” Bates and Jason Samuels Smith. Bates
I have grown up in what is considered one of the most accepting cities in the United States. San Francisco is home to the many LGBTQ activist, the first female speaker of the house, and countless environmental groups. Growing up in San Francisco I have had a unique and very diverse upbringing. One of the many communities I belong to is the Dance Mission.
The Puritans left England for New England by escaping in the Mayflower ship in hopes to find religious freedom through pilgrimage. Half of them were protestants that wanted to form their own church. Their separation of the Church of England in order to fulfill their desire to purify it from Catholic beliefs.
I had too much free time. It's not really normal for a 6 year old to be bored. with all the excitement and joy with being a clueless 6 year old, I was bored, a lot. I always remembered picking up my sister from dance, with a smile on her face, always talking about the new steps and moves she learned, to be honest, I kinda used to be jealous. She went to this little place called the dance shoppe. The dance shop was sorta a small place, but they had trophies lined up the walls. mrs michigan 2007 mrs michigan 2006... My sister was always nagging me to go to dance because I always complained about being bored but I was a stubborn 6 year old so I would always say “dance is for girls.” But somehow, they convinced me to go to dance.
It’s difficult to pinpoint a specific moment in one’s life in which your life is transformed. We often realize that this moment is so signingagent when looking back on personal experiences and don’t realize it at the time. For me, this moment occurred when I realized that I had taken what I love most for granted.
Belly dance and the Waltz are two very different types of dance. The origin of the name Belly dance came from the French term “danse du ventre” which means dance of the stomach. It includes complex moves of the torso. Although it came from French terms, it’s an ancient Egyptian dance that originated in India over 5,000 years ago and spread through the Middle East. Some believe it’s a religious dance that was performed during fertility rituals and has to do with celebrating childbirth. Since there is little evidence to support that, others don’t think it had anything to do with childbirth and that it came from ancient Egyptian social dances. Some famous dancers include Amar Gamal, Amera Eid, and Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman. Belly dancing, like most styles of dance, is used to express yourself. One tradition of Belly dancing is when a
When I first started the free running, I felt I could never stop. I worked intensely at it for six months, running twenty-six miles every two days from school to home. I was motivated and as a result, I endured and became a successful runner. This sport, started from a great need for transportation, taught me much about preserving and achieving more than I expected.
Ever since i was young i fell in love with the art of dance. When i finally joined i felt like i was a little behind hence everyone was in my class was dancing since they were toddlers. My first day of dance was pretty nerve racking. My teacher would say to do something and i wouldn't know what to do because i didn't know any dance vocabulary. I would have to look around and try to fit in as much as possible so my teacher wouldn't think i wasn't fit for the class. Few weeks went on and i start catching up i was going home looking up videos and looking up vocabulary so every time i went back to practice i would improve more and more. When i first started dance it was hard because i wasn't as strong, flexible, or and experienced as the other
My dance experience trails back to when I was a freshman in high school, getting involved in some classes at my local dance studio. Immediately, I fell in love with this art form and knew I wanted to carry it with me beyond high school. I began dancing as a dance major at Mesa College in Fall 2017. While I am only just beginning to delve into my second semester, I can already say that I have expanded my knowledge of dance and dance technique at Mesa. In my dance classes, I have been able to improve upon my body placement and proper alignment. With the help of my instructors, I am able to work towards improving elements I have always struggled with, such as balance. Even outside of class, like auditioning for Mesa 's dance concert, I have found that the structure and organization of these auditions has helped prepare me for audition processes in the real world. Picking up and retaining choreography quickly is something I tend to struggle with, but these auditions give me the practice necessary to perform to my greatest ability and figure out methods to be on top of my game. Dance is like therapy to me, and after a long day of work or other classes, it feels comforting to have my dance classes as an outlet to express myself and exert my energy into something positive. On that same note, I have felt overwhelming support from my dance instructors at Mesa. There are times where I 've felt alone as a dance major, especially coming to college for the first time and realizing that
