My Students

My school is a Title 1, single gender academy and my students are girls studying the art of dance. They are a combination of young ladies who have been dancing since the age of 4, and girls who are trying out dance for the first time as high and middle schoolers. My students have the privilege of attending a single gender school that provides them with freedom and support to become leaders and citizens who will change the world around them. Everyday my students recite a school creed and pledge that reminds them that in spite of the world around them, they do not have to be helpless victims to their surroundings. The creed and pledge reminds them to see themselves as strong, courageous, and beautiful leaders of tomorrow and today.

My students are girls who are gaining an understanding that dance is not just a form of amusement, but can also be a tool for inspiration and communication.

This year the students were allowed to pick dance as elective as oppose to it simply being issued to them. Therefore my students are girls who have a deep appreciation, interest, and value for dance as a performing art.

My Project

I will be using the Samsung LED TV to view and critique student performances and other notable dance performances for the benefit of academic studies. My students often have limited exposure to formal dance performances. Therefore, we depend on the use of a television and other devices that store or capture videos to view dance performances.

My class is in need of a television with updated technology that will be compatible with our video recording and storage system.

Although the devices we use to capture and store video performances are very current, the television we have is very out dated, and can not be used.
