The Sound of Music for the Dancers

My students need this Apple iPod so that we are able to transfer our music from iTunes. Right now, the process has been too time consuming and is sometimes unsuccessful due to an incompatible device.

My Students

I have the sweetest and most eager to learn dance students. We are in a Title I school, and most of our students are economically disadvantaged. I am happy to be able to share my love of dance with them as many have never gotten the chance to explore dance outside of school.

This area was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey's flood, and it has taken a long time for the community to rebuild, but slowly things are getting back to normal.

Many of the students have kept their spirits and hopes up high. Through their resilience and positive outlook, we are caught up and currently working towards our annual dance recital. The kids have been making up their own dance routines and are getting super excited.

My Project

We have had many issues this year due to changing technology and having an incompatible device to get our iTunes music to play. This iPod would be amazing to have because it would cut out so many steps in getting our music portable. At this time, we have to convert our music files (if they are even allowed) and then figure out how to get them to play back on our older device. Too many confusing steps are involved with no guarantee it will work. We have given up on our older device and now use my personal phone which, in the end, drains its batteries.
