Transitioning from taking ballet from last semester to this has not changed my perspective much because I had a general idea of the goals I wanted to focus on. Reflecting on ballet from the fall, I noticed some habits that I am working on in this class.I did not know what to expect on how each combination at the barre is going to be executed. Even though all ballet classes have the same movement terminology everyone has a unique style of teaching.Over the last year of study, I have been able to grow as a dancer and also to plan goals before this semester started. My views on ballet have not changed much because I knew what I wanted to work on, aiming towards and trying to find a goal that I can relate to for each exercise. By continuing to take ballet this semester, I can work on my weaknesses and areas where I do not keep my movement as continuous as I do with other movements.
I sit in class zoned out thinking to myself how I would do in powerlifting. That isn’t a sport you would normally think of when it comes to female activities. Every other sport seems to come easy, why not give this a shot? Going out of my comfort zone and trying something I’ve never done before. My experience with powerlifting has been an intense and test to physical strength.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I’ve spent hundreds of hours working with my peers, building friendships while working toilsomely to perfect one show each year.
Now I’m doing something completely different from all three of the previous years. I’m preparing myself to raise a child. High school changed everything in my life. I one was good at math, I never had so many teachers leave at one time, my taste in friends was proven to be a typical high school experience, and my free time changed. After Senior year I’m not looking forward to adult for the rest of my
With a topic I truly care about I wish I would have done a little more with my paper than I did. Grammatically, I still need a lot of improvement. I write like I would text sometimes, and that is a bad habit that needs to be broken. But just in one semester I can see my improvements though my
Writing down the feedback has helped me when going into the next class and focusing on the corrections I have already got as well as looking at things that I set for myself. As I start this fall semester in a higher technique level modern class, I want to really focus on taking more risks and reaching further in my kinesphere, and dropping my pelvis more and getting lower. In the past, I have received feedback from Professor Hapke about taking more risks. She has stated that I need to find more ways for my body to move that surprises me. Taking these
My thoughts on the video My thoughts on the video are that it dealt with the process in which one must go through in order for to move out of their comfort zone. Not only that but, when moving out of the comfort zone it can be critical for career success. Keeping in mind that moving out of my comfort zone it will only be helpful depending on the path I choose to take. What I must remember that people are constantly catching me. Whatever I may do may be a role model inspiring others model for growth and change.
Through high school my grades weren’t the best. I enjoyed challenging classes, but they were a lot of work. Between the work load and problems at home, I didn’t keep up well. By spring of my senior year I realized my hopes of leaving the small town I lived in weren’t going to happen. A friend who worked at the local community college contacted me about attending classes in the fall.
Each semester was an improvement on the other. This experience in school has taught me not to take anything for granted. The fact that I am not interested in something does not necessarily mean I should not strive to do well at it. I also learned that it is never too late to improve on yourself and giving up is never an
