Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

It will build relationships with members of groups that have been underserved by the arts. The feedback from my instructor would help my confidence with my turns and the technique of my turns. I would also see improvement in my overall technique and knowledge of dance. It would help me to prepare myself better for the audition I will have to in order to get into the college dance program I want. I would also get better scores on my solo at competitions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

My scores from the dance competition I attended were much higher than usual and from the video of my dance, I can tell that my turns, jumps, and overall dancing has improved.
