Dance Class Reflection
Over the course of the semester, I have learned about different types of dances including hip hop, dance hall, and contemporary, Bhangra, street jazz, Latin, zumba and more. In the beginning, I believed that I danced well and dance was easy to do but once I figured out how much effort, practice, coordination, and preparation for a dance, I thought differently. Dance is all about expressing your emotions by using your body, having fun, gaining strength in my muscles and developing a balance not only for dance purposes but for my inner self.

I really loved doing group dances because it got a chance for me to understand my classmates a lot more. For the flash mob, I really felt like we finally connected and worked together as a group because I believed the Bhangra show was disastrous because no one was working together, everyone skipped classes, they didn’t take it seriously but in the flash mob, everyone worked together to practice the dancing, put our full ability into the movement and we successfully entertained our crowd.
I’d like to focus a lot more on dancing instead of warm-ups and workouts. Although dancing requires a lot of working out, I believe that our ISU should have focused on dancing as it is a dance class. I thought the ISU was going to be choreographing your own dance or learning a dance on YouTube and performing the dance to the class where we can be critiqued on dance criteria. When I found out that we’re doing a warm-up for a big portion of the dance ISU, I felt disappointed because I really wanted to show my dancing creativity and culture to the class that they haven’t seen. I found that since we were limited to equipment like, getting hooked up to the internet to watch dance videos, we were unable to really extend our knowledge in dance which was unfortunate.
I believed I did pretty well over the course. I didn’t want to slack in the course to be honest. I felt like I was influenced by other classmates and I guess I should have stopped it
