What are the responsibilities required to be a dance captain, and how can I efficiently manage and teach a group of people choreography? Summary: I will be a dance captain for the schools fall musical. Dance captain is like a job that I was assigned. I have certain expectations that I need to meet and have goals to complete daily. I have been built into the schedule so that I have times when people are working with me while the director is rehearsing other scenes. My duties include writing choreography for the show and also being able to learn every dance number and blocking so I can teach it to all of the cast members and be there for reference when needed. I am a dancer myself so I am interested in learning how to transform from the student …show more content…
It will allow me to be a manager and better my leadership skills. I will learn how to manage a big group of people, which is something that can be applied to many various careers.

Methods: I will first contact the director so that we can collaborate on ideas. Then I will start thinking of choreography, spacing, and places for the big dance number. I will create an outline for how to run rehearsal and what I need to teach. I will warm up the cast before every time we dance. I will break down the choreography to the cast in order to teach it to them, while gradually bringing the choreography up to tempo. I will run dance rehearsals.

Ever since I was little I wanted to be a captain just like my older sister. Back then I thought it was just a cool label, but in my past three years as a TCHS cheerleader I have quickly learned the amount of dedication and hard work this position entails. I qualify for being a captain because I have a good attitude, work well with others, and always put in an effort to work hard.
It is important to have good communication skills, whether it's asking for information or even calling to explain why you may not make rehearsals (not that they care). If you want to maintain your spot or whatever it is they may be able to replace you in, I'd say being on time and having good communication skills is what's going to help you in staying apart of the company. You have to have respect for the “dance world” because there are many people out there who wish to be in your place. Just be mindful and try not to miss any
My passion for color guard and dance are only growing. I have done dance since I was four and have loved every challenge that I have encountered as a dancer. Color guard, for me, is putting something I’m good at and making it that much harder, but better, with a flag or other equipment. Color guard is simply another exciting way to dance. Every movement with our flag is dance move that needs to be executed, perfected, and performed with the grace of a ballerina from the New York City ballet company. I have learned more lessons in the past year about performing than in the last eight years of performing that I have done. Color guard gives me both the structure and order of ballet, but also the loving and fun environment that makes you want to come back practice after practice, year after year. I want to be a leader for a team that has helped me find that perfect balance of fun and
I have taught dance classes for the last four years and the little dancers really look up to me as their role model. I was nominated as dance team captain by my peers for my school dance team. I have also been on the leadership team at Central DeWitt Community Schools. We would meet regularly to talk about goals to increase our leadership skills amongst our peers. I am also a member of the Jr. Brown Swiss Association and have lead the younger members through our annual concession stand fundraisers teaching them the ropes so they can help the next generation. All of these leadership roles are thanks to my devotion to 4-H. Being involved with my community is a future goal of mine. It always feels good to give

In my every day life I lead wether that is as a student ambassador showing and leading potential students around the school or leading an art class for the schools preview night. I even help out in theater teaching new thespians how things work and even how to build walls for the next showstopper we put on. In class i try to help lead discussions, I ask questions to try
Dancing requires a variety of skills and abilities. It requires for one to have balance, and also to be limber. Having upper body strength and leg strength is just as critical an asset in dancing as it is in playing football or any other nationally recognized sport. Just as a football player needs a good memory to remember all the different plays and routes that are needed to run, a dancer has to remember the different steps and turns with in each move. Dancers practice their moves in an effort to sharpen their skills and abilities for the same that other traditional athletes would.
The next step is to see what the skills and abilities can go further in the dance world. A choreographer needs to communicate, reason and problem solve, manage oneself, people, time, work with people, perceive, and visualize. Another thing to prepare for is school. Finding the right school or certifications is important. For this career in particular, the only certification needed is a high school diploma although getting a master may help get more jobs with experience. Majoring in dance in college can help the chances of becoming a professional choreographer. “Many programs concentrate on modern dance, but some also offer courses in jazz, culturally specific dance, ballet, or classical techniques” (Dancer / Choreographer Training and Qualifications). After college, training with someone who understands the business and will teach the ways of the dance world in the choreographer
Dance therapy began as a profession in the 1940s with the work of Marian Chace. A modern dancer, she began teaching dance after ending her career with the Denishawn Dance Company in 1930. In her classes, she noticed that some of her students were more interested in the emotions they expressed while dancing (loneliness, shyness, fear, etc.) than the mechanics of the moves. She began encouraging them by emphasizing more freedom of movement rather than technique.
My friend Du and I always go to gym, and sometimes after doing exercise, we started to practice the movements we studied and some techniques that professor emphasis in class. We tried to recall the actions and dance over and over again, I know it was difficult to dance like the professor does, but we try our best and to guide each other. In addition, we watch the Dirty Dancing Show and got know what the professional dancer looks like.
As a dancer, I learned early in life that personal success was dependant on the success of those around you. When performing, there are so many tasks racing through my mind: making sure props and quick changes are set, helping the younger dancer with costumes and make-up, and many other small tasks. These wouldn’t directly affect me but they would affect the performance as a whole. These scenarios have been part of my life for 14 years and I realize that someone needs to step up and do more than what is needed of them. For the last few years, I have taken on that role because I felt I was best suited for it, being one of the most advanced dancers.
Dance has significantly influenced me both personally and professionally. I found dance early on in my life. My childhood experiences led me to the arts, mental health and wellness, and into the field of dance/movement therapy. I have worked in a variety of different settings, with a number of different populations, and with people of all ages. Through my career as a board certified dance therapist and licensed professional counselor, I have always been guided by my beloved relationship with dance. From community mental health agencies, youth development and expressive art programs, non-profit organizations, medical hospitals, educational settings, dance studios, and private practice, I create individual interactions and designs programs with
However, since my section, percussion, was so large, it technically consisted of two different sections: drumline and the pit, which included instruments such as keyboards. For the most part, the captains had prefered to be in drumline, so the pit, of which I was a part of, was left alone for the most part. Since we had no one to guide us, we were unfocused in the beginning. I decided then to take an initiative and to focus our group. As I began to do this, our work ethic increased and it became very apparent that we were doing better than we have in previous years. Seeing this, my director decided to promote me to captain, something which surprised me as this usually did not
To be successful in a dance career is a hard thing to accomplish. A person looking to have a career in dance must have experience in dance for many years and be able to take the heat of the competition. A dancer must be able to hold their own and be able to take opportunities when the time is right, not too soon, and certainly not too late (Brady). In the dancing ‘world’ a person must also be able to handle the word “no” in any field of dance that he or she decides to go into; a dancer will be told this word often. Learning of the different occupations that there are inside of dance helps someone looking for a career in dance achieve one even if they do not have the needed skills to become a dancer. Although there are a lot of hardships that
To many, dance is only an art. In reality, dance is much more. It 's an art, a sport, a way to express one’s self, a way to exercise, a way to get feelings out. Since the beginning of time, humans have used different types of dance to express themselves. There are many advantages to dancing, however there are also some disadvantages. Dance is one of the most physically and cognitively demanding sports.
