There were a lot of things that I always wanted to do, One of the things was Dance. This year our grade organised Farewell for our seniors as it was their last year, in which I chose to be in a dance group. Volunteering in the Dance group helped me improve my dance skills.
LO1-Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth
As I wasn’t a dancer so there were few steps that were difficult for me but slowly and gradually I was able to improve. I was good at expressing myself and I wasn’t shy to perform in front of an audience which was my strength which helped me a lot. Also as I am a sports person so I never had a problem of stamina which helped me practice and improve my steps more than others.
LO2-Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process.
There were a few challenges that I faced while dancing. So the major challenge was as I wasn’t a dancer so it was hard for me to match my steps with the others and sometimes the dance was fast and sometimes was slow which was a very confusing thing which I managed doing.
LO3-Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience
It was difficult for me, in the beginning, to match the pace with others. I made a plan which includes steps, repetitions and time, which I followed in my home which helped me a lot in learning the steps as I was practising extra and was working on my weaknesses.
LO4-Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences
It was very hard for me to wake up early in the morning as we had to come to school early for practise but due to the commitment I made to others and to myself I never missed a single class which shows how committed I was.
LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively
Working together helped us a lot as everyone was considering different points of views and were giving their suggestions which helped us as a team to see our dance from different perspectives and to work upon it. Because of the Farewell, working in a team was a new skill that I learnt and am very proud of.
Now I feel more confident about dancing and This event helped me a lot to know myself better as I never thought I’ll be able to dance well. Also, the event taught me how important it is to plan things and to work as a team. This was an event which I’ll cherish forever.
