    Th Gift of Social Dance Social Dance has opened my eyes to the different possibilities of how dance can make people feel.

I joined the class because my roommate did not want to do it alone, and it would be something different and out of my comfort spot. However, I am actually very pleased with the overall outcome that came from this experience from the various types of dances, having new partners each day, and the phenomenon interesting social and dance labs. I originally thought that the ballroom only consists of one type of dance called the waltz. I was by far amazed at the different variations of the Waltz, swing, and two steps. Before the class, I could not see myself doing any ballroom dance beside salsa and bachata. However, I saw myself very intrigued and enjoying-oddly-the Waltz. Now, when I think of the Waltz, I think of the cliché Disney scenes at the end of the movie that I so adored as a child. Sometimes I even prefer the Waltz instead of the swing because how peaceful, graceful, and the most serene feeling that I get when I dance with a partner.

    I love dance, social media, Taylor Swift, history, and learning new things. I started dance when I was about two years old. I continued doing ballet and tap until I was about ten because I didn't find it fun anymore. However, about two years ago, I watched a show on TV called Dance Academy. It was a fiction show about this ballet school in Sydney, Australia. This was what got me so interested in ballet. Since I was attending a private school, I didn't have the time or the money to start taking…

    pitter-pattering feet, the fresh, cool feeling of the wind coming through the door, and the beautiful sight of an empty area full of creative potential, makes it a perfect Sunday evening for my dance instructor. I sit in the center of the empty dance studio with my ears wide open as my dance instructor sits by my side. She is wearing her favorite black, velvet dress lined with snake patterned cuffs, elegant pieces of jewelry, and black leather boots. She sits patiently, yet eagerly as I start…

    non-western influenced dance was little to none. My knowledge of dance was not very vast but I did have some knowledge, as I was a part of a Mexican folkloric dance group while in high school. However most Mexican folk dances are evident in the heavy influence that European settlers had on them. Although I did have this small knowledge of dance, I knew it would not be much help for this assignment. My background in dance did not help me a lot in certain aspects but it did help me slightly on…
