A: I learned by watching. That was the most important thing. I watched the best dancers in the world and tried to do what they did.

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.
