I have never had any experience of dance growing up or in school. As a result of the lack of experience I automatically decided that I didn’t like dance. Therefore going into the dance input openminded was always going to be a struggle. My dislike for dance growing up made it difficult for me to fully engage with the activities as I felt uncomfortable. However the dance input opened my eyes to new ways in which I could deliver a successful dance lessons to pupils which can allow me to increase inclusion within my classroom. Dance lessons can be a way for me as a teacher to continue to promote the importance of keeping fit, the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the opportunity to build confidence.
Leaving the dance input has definitely made me more confident in teaching dance however the dance input has not had the greatest effect on my opinion as I still feel I don’t like dance. This is something I am currently working on to change.
