Dance
By Jenna Frazier and Sarah Frey
Essential Question:
How does dance change lives?
My Dance Discovery
Saw my first dance show in seventh grade
Started taking jazz and ballet at Dance Factory/Arizona Conservatory for Arts and Academics
Five years later dance is my passion
Dance has been my escape for all my problems
I discovered how to channel my emotions into dance
This year I was given the chance to dance on a performance company at Royal Dance Works
I realized every single person had their own reason for being in dance
By Jenna Frazier
I became very curious about how dance impacted all my fellow dancers
The Answers From Dancers
Next step: Interview Dancers and listen to their stories
"I dance because it is for me. I don't have to be in the shadow of anyone, except me, and I will always outshine my shadow. I dance because I can't think of anything better to do with my life. Without dance, I would not be myself. " ~Chase Doyle, dancer at Royal Dance Works
"Dance has helped me grow as a person into a more mentally mature person because of the difficult tasks that I dealt with through dance. It taught me how to handle those hard times and how to get through them."
~Anna Duval, dancer at Arizona Conservatory for Arts and Academics and A Time to Dance
"Just while I was dancing, I could express what I never could with words, and it changed how I felt about my life. It made me feel better about myself and my life. I didn't feel like hurting myself anymore, and I lost weight, and really learned what it was to respect myself and my body."
~Nicole LeVine, past Arizona Conservatory for Arts and Academics student
"Even when dance hurts or is hard or competitive, I never quit because I love it more than life. I can lose myself doing a combo or push my body going across the floor. Dance is the only pure way to express myself and something that I couldn't live without."
~ Katelin Mason, dancer at Royal Dance Works
"Dance was kind of a way for me to vent and when you experience something like that (referring to the loss of a loved one), it's hard to find things that make you happy for periods of time until the pain lessens. And all the friends I had at my studio were a great support group."
~Isabel Strouse, dancer at Royal Dance Works
"Dance is beautiful. It allows you to connect and disconnect from yourself at the same time. It is an art form that is part technicality and creativity. No two dancers are alike, and the interpretation of moves is what keeps dance beautiful. Dance is about letting go and holding on to emotions for inspiration."
~Alex Watts, Arizona State University student
Martha Graham
Created modern dance (Freedman)
Believed emotions couldn't always be expressed in words (Freedman 98)
Science Bit!
Dancing is aerobic exercise
This type of exercise relieves symptoms of anxiety disorders (Ratey)
Creative movement boosts serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine (Barron)

Essential Question:
How does dance benefit the community?
Dancing for a good cause is one of the great things you can do with a dance passion.
Also I found that dancing to tell a story is also full of emotion and is a great way to get a point across
Where it all started
The reason I chose the benefits dance has on the community
8th grade benefit show for Dancers Against Drunk Drivers (D.A.D.D.).
A little girl in the dance department was killed



Did a show in memory of her and the proceeds went to the D.A.D.D.
Being a part of this show was beneficial to both the organization and me.
I got to do what I love while contributing to the organization.
By: Sarah Frey
This video is from Dance Moms.
It is a perfect example of dancing about a life situation.

Grew up doing gymnastics
Started dance in 7th grade at ACAA
Dance from then on was my passion
Still dance as a senior
Dance as exercise
Found that many people use dance as exercise
Exercise is an important part of staying healthy
Dancers performance affects the audience
Dancers give off an emotion in dance that helps the audience understand and connect with the dancer
A dancers connection to the audience affects how the performance is interpreted
It is a form of staying fit
Dance raises your heart rate
What made me come to my product
Dancing for both yourself and others
Why not use your passion to help someone else
The Original Blocking
Warm-Ups
Technique
Improvisation:
Across the Floor
The Color Game
Combo

Luis and Elizabeth Sands Boys and Girls Club
on Grovers Ave
*We wanted to use popular contemporary style music
The Show Must Go On
Some kids were too young to understand complicated technique
Easily lost interest
We improvised a way to make it exciting:
Fun warm-ups
Dance Circle
Freeze dance game
Trapped in a box
What's the Pointe?
To give kids the chance to enjoy themselves
Inspire them to dance in the future
Move how they want to move to express themselves
Every Dance Class Has a Lesson
There's no guideline on how to be a dancer
Dancing is about passion and being yourself
Dancing has the power to save lives and save people from sadness
Although there are plenty of other sports and arts to be passionate about, everyone should at least have the opportunity to try dancing
On a personal level:
This project reminded me of why I love dance
Inspired me to share my knowledge of dance with others who may need it
Future Dancers
The program manager at Luis and Elizabeth Sands Boys and Girls Club invited us to teach again in the future
I'm going to Arizona State University for Dance Education
My old dance teacher from ACAA offered to let me teach her students in the future
I hope to start out as a dance teacher and eventually open my own studio
We can also teach at other Boys and Girls Club Locations
