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.
Rebecca Simmons and I vied any chance that we got. From getting 1st place at a dance recital, to who recites an excerpt the best in class, we were constant rivals. It wasn’t uncommon for her to try to jeopardize my winning, as she frequently messed with my tap shoes, or put water in my hair spray. This time, I avowed to myself, to not let anything get in the way
I kept ignoring any conversation with my friends that related to the dance squad team because I did not want to admit to the insecurities that were running through my mind – I pretended that I didn’t want to be on the dance squad, but deep down inside it is all I thought about. It is all I wanted, and that is what I did. Suddenly, I gathered enough confidence (with a lot of encouragement from my friend Ashley) and told myself I will just try out for the dance squad team. By then, a week had already passed, and the girls who signed up had already learned the choreography. I felt as if I would be too behind, and that I wouldn’t be capable of learning the choreography on time.
The first part says an activity which cheerleading is because people take time out of their days to come to practice and make themselves better athletes. Cheer takes up alot of someone's life because school cheerleading is everyday after school for two of more hours for the football and the basketball season, and then also they have games every week that takes up all of their Fridays. Competitive cheerleading is two or more practices a week that are two and a half hours for the entire year. Competition cheer is an all year round sport that has no off season. This amount of time isn't including choreography camps or dance camps which are set dates in which the teams routine are made and they need up to five days for that and all the days are at least six hours long since the routines are so complex.
Ever since I was young I had wanted and made it my goal to one day attend the University of Washington. I grew up coming to the campus with my parents and faithfully wearing purple every game day but as I grew older my educational paths and my career paths changed and I no longer had the same goals that 10-year-old me had. I have always valued my education and I am very blessed to be able to study what I want and ultimately fall into a career that I will spend my whole life doing and loving every minute of it. The past few years of my life, my emotional and physical capabilities have been challenged due to my choice in academic paths, I have experienced failure but I learned how to get back up and start again. In high school, I participated
I was disciplined, and I never expected to get anything right away. My perseverance, my success, and also the journey I had to take to bring home the gold will hopefully motivate others to chase their dreams. Before I could achieve my dream of being an Olympian, I had to put in lots of hard work and sacrifice. To give you some backstory, I was born to a woman who couldn’t take care of me (Biles and Buford 25). Nobody knows that I am in gymnastics right now because of a field trip I took in school when I fell in love with the gym and the overwhelming sense of joy that it brought me (Biles and Buford 46).
I was able to empower myself through Drama Club, Femineus Vocalis, Reading Olympics, Multicultural Club, and Student Government, but most influentially through Class Activities Club where I served as an officer for my class. Even though I was eventually voted out of office, my experience helping my class activities – even when I was not a class officer – helped empower me to be more self-confident. Freshman year of high school I decided to run for class Secretary so I could campaign alongside two of my friends, who were running for President and Vice President. I went all out, making several different posters and hung them all around school. However, I ended up losing that election.
I had always wished others would experience what it was like to help someone who had some type of a disability, etc. I was always there to help, encourage and teach her many different life skills, as well as being her friend, where we go see movies, shopping and so much more. While I was by her side, I was able to experience with her EA’s assisting her, the teachers helping her and her parents. All those people aspired me to help others, like my best friend, to conquer this world
As said before I want to maintain my health and fitness, whilst strengthening my dance skills. I know that my main strength is naturalistic acting, and I still want to explore this method of work more. I have trained in this technique for a few years, and I’d like to look into jobs where I can apply what I have learnt – for example on-screen acting and straight plays. I’m hoping to still be in London next year, so I have modelled my Budget Plan around my current London rent and the expenses I would have if I still live here. I am not putting great pressure on myself now to get an agent, during my training at LCM.
Ayush Sah Mrs. Seeley Eng IV 3B 17 Sept 2015 Considering your lifetime goals, discuss how your current and future academic and extracurricular activities might help you achieve your goals. Growing up in an Asian family and heritage, I was always told to push myself to the limit. Being a hardworking student, I have taken challenging classes throughout my high school career. Higher level courses such as Pre-AP, AP, and IB classes have helped me transcend my own limits, pushed me to work harder and allowed me to realize my full potential. My entire life I thought in school, I would learn all I need to know to be successful in this world.
