There are many different meanings for the term team player one is “A person who plays or works well as a member of a team or group.” Although I knew the real definition of this word, I had to find out my own definition to have a better understanding of this meaning. When learning how to be a team player your mind, soul, and body have to be open to open to learning how to adjust and learn a different way of acting. My first personal experience learning how to be a team player happened in middle school, 7th grade to be exact. I joined a local dance performing company where I surpassed a lot of other students in jazz, hip hop, and ballet. In every dance performance are company had I excelled and was pushed to the front, in doing that, I became big-headed and thought I was the best and that no one could tell me anything.
I am an incoming freshman and also a recruit of Pat Hanlon’s for the 2011-2012 Oswego State Women’s Volleyball team. When making my decision for which college to attend, I was inspired by everything that the team had to offer. The team striked me as so welcoming, they had an enormous amount of chemistry while playing together, and were truly amazing ,enthusiastic individuals. After seeing one game, my decision to attend Suny Oswego was finalized. My mom and I attended a match last fall season and I felt such an amazing vibe from the girls.
A few practices in, and only a few more to go, the routine was coming together and I was really proud of all the hard work and dedication that these kids had put into their cheer routine. Our first competition was being held in Lexington about four hours away. Getting all of our uniforms altered and putting the final touches on the routine we were finally ready and I had never seen the kids more excited and determined to show everyone what they could do, and possibly
Joining drill team my freshman year was an experience that helped call to mind memories of the past. Freshman year was the first time ever in my life I believed the excitement and pride of accomplishing something because little did I know what I was doing when I was younger. After that I thought I could put myself out there and accomplish more. It was the start of something different and little did I know it would shape my high school years around it. Drill team gave me the knowledge that grades in high school do play an important role in life and I knew that if I put enough heart into it I would succeed.

When the admissions department discovered what had happened, they were going kick her out but they were so impressed with her skills that they let Allen stay in the program. Nevertheless, that wasn’t the end of Allen’s segregation struggle. After high school, Allen hoped to attend North Carolina School of Arts, but she was rejected because her body was "unsuited" for ballet; a criticism used to discourage black dancers. The rejection hit Allen hard, and for the duration of high school, she focused mainly on her studies. She decided to pursue a B.A.

In the video, the dance looked like it was very easy to execute but having already been in the technique class all year, it is amazing to know that doing the movements correctly is actually difficult. May O’Donnell constructs her pieces with the use of spacial structure. She organizes her dancers so that different groups are spread out differently throughout the stage and at times she uses all dancers in one singular spacial structure, like a diagonal. She changes the organization on stage frequently so that the audience would be constantly captivated by the rapid action on stage. She also uses many other choreographic tools to keep the attention of the audience and bring contrast to her piece.
I really need that now as I’m in high school and there are more challenges than before. Ms. Melinda pushes me to improve my technique and increase the difficulty of my dancing. Trying new things led me to places I never thought I could go and chances I never thought I would be able to get. Ms. Melinda has given me so many chances and opportunities. I really appreciate
Claire Standish was the popular prom queen, wealthy conceited princess, but unlike her I was a highly sociable individual. When I was a freshman in high school, all I ever visualized was being captain of the cheerleading team and becoming prom queen of class 2010. Being prom queen would mean so much to me, as it meant just as much to Claire Standish.
