I learned hip-hop style in dance. I dance on the song “sorry” by Justin Bieber. This is completely new style as we used to perform different folk dances in As performance till now. It was completely different experience. I thought this form of dance would be easier than other but it turned out it was as difficult as another form of dance. I was quite nervous before the performance. I was scared what if I forget steps. Although, I was excited because I was going to perform the new style of dance. We practiced during our AS slot.
My strength was I could learn quickly. I was able to replicate what our choreographer was teaching us. My weakness was the pace at which dance was perform was fast so before I could finish my first step, the second step was already started. This even led me to remember few steps.
It was challenging because I was not very flexible. There were steps which required us to be flexible which restricted me to perform clear movements. I work on my flexibility with methods like warm up, cool down and stretching exercises.
It was not a solo dance so we required coordination. Working as a team helped us to know each other. As It was a completely new form of dance for me, It made me tired and difficult to show the consistency in my performance. And time management was also required. We had really few classes before our final performance and we were left with few seconds of our song so reaching early for the class helped us finish the dance. I have attended almost all the classes so make sure that I am not lacking behind.
Working in a group is easier for me because I coordinate with other and we make best of it. Working with a group of the dancer who were familiar with this style of dance was benefiting for me as I could always ask them for the demonstration about steps that I had to clear upon.
Dance is an entertainment. I enjoy seeing audience enthusiastic and energized by our performance Learner profile I achieved was reflective by learning the steps from our choreographer. However, It was a really different experience. Now hip-hop is my new favourite form of dance.
