Dancing to the Beat!

Help me give my students the chance to show the community and their fellow peers, with the portable speaker, how fun and exciting it is to be on our dance team.

My Students

When it comes to our children, we want to give them the world. Many little girls and some little boys show an early interest in dance. Implementing different extracurricular activities in a public schools system can sometimes build one's character.

The main focus on our dance team is to build the girls confidence.

Discipline and self-control are very important character traits when it comes to dancing. You must practice and you must hold yourself in the proper positions for the moves you need to take.

We teach our dance team that with the right amount of confidence, anything is possible. We not only focus on dance but their academics as well. The girls are given life lessons as well as the focal point of being healthy. What warms my heart about each one, is that they are so motivated to learn new things.

My Project

Donating to our dance team will give the dancers the opportunity to show their skills and abilities to the student body as well as the community. curricular will allow the dancers to be able to use the portable speaker to walk in parades and perform in other means of the community.

We are a team that values our community and have had many opportunities to participate throughout the city.

Our dance team works very hard on our performances, whether we are big or small.

The portable speaker is just what we need to help each performance go as planned. We won't have to try and find someone to play our music for us. We will be able to play it on our dancing device!! That would be incredibly AWESOME!
