"Coach, I think all I know how to do is dance." This is a quote from a student that is currently a member of the Curie HS Pom Pon Squad, of which I am a coach/sponsor.
As an inner-city educator, it is imperative that we tap into subjects/areas that students may show success in order to provide them with courage and patience to learn new things.
With that understanding, I know that participation in extracurricular activities can provide that self-confidence, bonding opportunities, patience, and school pride necessary for at-risk students to successfully complete high school.
For that reason, I am soliciting help for my Pom Pon Squad. This is a group of excellent dancers who are experienced in all forms of dance - modern, jazz, ballet, hip hop, etc. These young ladies are excited to collaborate and choreograph quality dance routines for school games - but lack some resources to perfect their performance.
We are in need of an amplifier in order for their music to be heard in the gymnasium during their performances. Any musical performer knows how critical it is to have the appropriate acoustics present during a performance. For the past year, my girls have been diligently performing even though the audience cannot appropriately hear their music.
Please, please help us to inspire these gifted young ladies to continue to dance, and possibly secure a city dance championship! They definitely have the potential!
