    I have traveled to other countries, competed alongside professionals, performed in front of thousands - but what I have gained the most from was a journey that came to a loss. In 2013, my dance team was invited to a national competition in New York City. Everyday I attended workshops surrounded by talent of all ages. I invested my sweat and tears at studios my idols rehearsed at. Coming back from a major injury, I knew I had to work harder than everyone else and persevere. Pain was not going

From listening to their experiences and drawing back on my own experiences I have learned a lot about how I would want to lead my team.

    competed in the IHSDTA Dance team competition with my fellow teammates and members of the NHS dance team. We walked into the vast, expansive Fieldhouse knowing that it was the largest High School Fieldhouse in the Nation. The anticipation in the air was electric and full of excited chatter of girls who had been preparing for months for this one day… actually for these two minutes. We were a pom and hip-hop team.

    I'm so excited, this is my first year on the dance team! I'm probably the youngest on the team because I'm only 6 years old but I know that I’m going to do great. The dance team is at a studio called Patti Herm School of Dance. It’s in Otsego which is about 20 minutes away from my house. The studio is pretty small so everyone knows everyone but since I'm new to the team I don't really know anyone yet. Some of the older girls have talked to me and helped me out when I needed it but I don't remember

Instead, I wanted to look into the aspects that really make the team a team. I also wanted to show that being on a dance team is not about stepping on your friends to get ahead, as many tv shows portray. Claire Binguit, an alumni of the team and now dance teacher, recalls

    Narrative Paper March 5, 2012 altered my life. I was in Orlando, Florida with my dance team. We competed at nationals the day earlier. The whole team was overjoyed with the results of the weekend. We got up at the crack of dawn to witness the spectacular world of Harry Potter at the Islands of Adventure. Honestly speaking, I wasn’t so fond of the idea of waking up at 5am just to see the magical world of Harry. I was yanked out of my comfy bed, yet after enough torture trying to get me off the bed

    was told that being on a team meant all you have to do is work with others and be polite. From 6th to 8th grade, I was told that all I need to do is "pull my own weight" or make sure I'm doing my part. When I joined my high school dance team, I started to realize how uneducated I was on the concept of a 'team'. On my dance team, there are about 40 girls. and we are all different in every way. One of the biggest differences between all of us is our level of experience in dance. About half of the girls

I had two races tonight, the 400 meter dash and the 4x400 relay. Our relay team had put in hours of work. Our handoffs were now nearly seamless, and we knew tonight was going to be our run. The rest off the school day went on as “typical”, but the

    On the Saturday morning that the team was announced, I was wracked with fear. I was participating in a rehearsal for a dance competition with another team during the hours leading up to the time that the list was going to be posted. Trying to get through that rehearsal was nearly impossible as my attention was more focused on what color nail polish would best match my new Chiefettes shirt that I would be wearing to school on Monday. Once my mother and sister arrived to pick me up from the studio

    Leading a team of teenage girls is most definitely not effortless, but it is something that I’ve done with pride for the past three years. When I entered high school, I was beyond eager to join the dance team. Unfortunately, it was not even the slightest of what I had expected it to be. We rarely performed and when we did, the feeling that I obtained exceeded embarrassment. I have danced since I was three years old, but it was so terribly draining, and not even in a physical way, that I considered

For instance, during the first three seasons I danced on the team, before competitions started, at least two girls quit each season, and some even quit multiple seasons because they remained unsatisfied with the same issues from past seasons. However, this season, not a single girl quit because of team issues, which shows this season's superiority. Another example of improving team dynamics is the way we all grew closer throughout this

    Our team sat in the hallway of our school, waiting for our name to be called to enter the gym. The pregame jitters were everywhere. Girls were bouncing up and down, fanning themselves and skittering around. I had a flood of emotions inside me. I was mostly excited but also quite nervous. What if my parents didn’t like the dance? What if my peers don’t like the dance? What if it looks bad? I couldn’t help but doubt the routine in a time of such nervousness. Our coach gave us each her routine good-luck
