WEEK 2

MY 3 INTERESTS

These are my 3 interests. I chose dance as one of the ways to express myself because I can express myself through it. My favourite dance form is Hip Hop, because the music I use to dance on it is fast and the way it is been performed, I feel that dance expresses my feelings. And now I am in my group, that is called 'The Dance Rebels'

TOWN HALL MEETING - 1

We had a Town Hall meeting where we saw different videos of people expressing themselves through their interests. We saw two videos:- Colours of reality & Danny macaskill all around the world 2014

Danny macaskill
COLOURS OF REALITY

From the video 'Colours of Reality' was to show that people can express themselves through expressions. From the video 'Danny macaskill all around the world 2014' was motivating and inspirational.

Essential Agreements
Mentor Meeting

The Mentor meeting might have been fun, we really liked our mentors and they gave us a question:- What does Dance mean to you? Our mentors are really helping us. I really like them!

  • I feel that my group is really good they like dance, they have a huge interest in it. I think they will work really well because at this moment we are doing really well.
  • I want to know all the lines of inquiry and the history of dance.
  • I am looking forward to present my first LOI.
