Another reason why I chose this stimulus, was the use of the cloth and costume to portray "how rhythms can be created by repeating and opposing shapes" and how "certain lines indicate motion". Due to my previous experience as a rhythmic gymnast, I was able develop original and unusual movements, because I was used to using cloth and ribbons as a means for demonstrating highly complex physical movements After receiving the stimulus, I first of all researched Atalanta. Using a variety of resources such as and the Internet, I found that Atalanta derived from Greek legend, and was a strong athletic competitor, whom no man could beat at running.

Using her light feet and amazing defense, Bree deflects the girl’s assault to get to the basket.
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. Dancing is also proven to be a form of cardio. Just as running around a track burns fat and calories so does dancing. Most types of dances utilize constant movement in which speeds up the heart rate thus burning the calories.
