I enjoy the contest due to a real-world theme based on a professional performance. There is also flexibility and openness to student expression.
The whole performance was slowed down enough and explained thoroughly so that every audience member was involved.
The audience loved it! It was set up perfectly and the timing was just right!
I loved that the kids were exposed to many different genres of dance.
Great environment, great collaboration, very supportive staff, great exposure to other types of dance such as Flamenco and Afro-Cuban, teachers teach the students not just a subject. It’s about the art form, embraces all levels, not about competition.
It helped me focus on the performance quality rather than just dancing
I had the opportunity to learn stylistic things I wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise
I loved the hands-on activity. It opened my mind to try things that are really outside the box!
I loved it. I especially loved when we shared ideas on how we could implement what we learned for our grade level
