My Students

In my dance classroom, students do more than learn to dance. I try to open my students' ears, eyes, and minds to a diverse world through dance. As an alum of my school's performing arts program, I am a direct example of how an arts education can influence a career. Over the years, as a professional dancer, I have been exposed to many experiences and became a better teacher because of them. As a result of these life experiences, I wish to share lessons about culture and history while honoring the movement and creations of my students.

At our International Baccalaureate school, students need to be exposed to world dance studies and real-world experiences for a well-rounded curriculum.

My students are hungry for knowledge, but my art department does not have all of the various resources to enrich their classroom experience. I have one hundred and sixty dancers to inspire and motivate.

My Project

My school’s dance department has so much to offer, from its arts departments to their academics. Even though we are strong in the arts, sometimes dance isn’t on top of the list and isn’t often thought about as a career option. A near goal of our Dance department is to expand our education and impact on the dance world. If we receive this grant, we envision a collaboration with our dance partner Emory University’s Dance Program to visit the campus and have workshops delivered through college professors. Students will be grouped with Emory Dance Major Students and participate and/or observe both dance and theory-based classes. Students will have the collegiate experience by walking on campus between the dance studio and gym where other dance studios are located.

This project would support bringing a group of passionate Dance Composition and International Baccalaureate dance students to visit Emory University as a field trip.

My goal for them is to get comfortable with different ways to create while also exploring dance as a viable option for college.

In alignment with APS CLL GROW.LEAD.TRANSFORM and Atlanta Public Schools vision, ‘A high-performance school district where students love to learn, educators inspire, families engage, and the community trusts the system’, I wish to transform my dance students into young adults that are able to think at a higher level, have an impact on their community and become patrons of dance. By participating in these workshops, students will also experience post-secondary options and engage in critical thinking.
