He began performing at a young age and when he got to his teens he went to his first ballet school, but he was the only boy that was enrolled. When he was there, outside the school he met another young dancer ‘Charles Grasser’ and they set up a duo which they called themselves the Riff brothers making $100 a week. By the time he was fifteen he had choreographed his first piece with four girls. All this really inspired me because he started choreographing at such a young age, and was very ambitious, but he was good at it ‘he was as much an artist as Nijinsky, Balanchine, or DeMille.’ This shows that he was just as famous and successful as them. Also it shows that you don’t have to be a perfect ballerina or have perfect technique to become such a successful choreographer, as Fosse had sway back knees which is why in a lot of his choreography he uses turned in knees to exaggerate his technique, but it’s made to look effective.
The teacher was told "J.C." when she asked his name to enter in her roll book, but she thought he said "Jesse". The name stuck and he would be known as Jesse Owens for the rest of his life.

At the National Interscholastic meet in Chicago, during his senior year, he set a new high school world record by running the 100 yard dash in 9.4 seconds to tie the accepted world record, and he created a new high school world record in the 220 yard dash by running the distance in 20.7 seconds.
Do Mozart’s works really have such a huge impact on us? Such issues remain controversial nowadays. Born in Austria on January 27, 1756, Mozart was a music prodigy. He played various instruments skillfully when he was young and composed his very first Minuet at the age of five. In his childhood, Mozart’s father often brought his only son and daughter touring around Europe to perform in courts and for nobility, and this greatly broadened Mozart’s vision and also built up a foundation for his music career later on.

Unfortunately I didn’t start as we had an experienced team, with only one more freshmen that made the varsity team. On the first game day, the unlucky sequence of events for the team gave me the chance to be the first freshmen starting goalkeeper in 5 years, as the starting goalkeeper sprained his wrist. From that day I did not give up the starting position, and was number one goalkeeper for my entire high school career. The regular season passed, and we were able to clutch the playoff spot against our arch rivals East Catholic. We had the great run, and ended up being the 10th seed.
One of the most notable studies on music and the brain, the Mozart Effect, began as a college research experiment. College students were given the chance to listen to ten minutes of a piano sonata before completing a test. The assessment involved tasks such as finding the patterns in both numbers and objects. The result showed that with just ten minutes of music, their skills were improved greatly. After seeing these results, the study was extended to pre-schoolers.

I can specifically remember my favorite part of middle school being our intramurals. It was a school wide basketball tournament at the end of the year we all looked forward too. You have to remember we were only ten or eleven years old and here comes coach Matthews strutting down the court in a full black suite with his orange tie, of course ,ruling the courts with an iron fist. He reminded me of a young Bobby Knight. Anyway, through school Justin and I as well as the rest of the groom’s men had almost every class together for four year, so we got to know each other pretty well.
