Joelle Downs Capstone
My Capstone was a Dance Mini-course that was to help make children feel more comfortable expressing their feelings. This mini-course included teaching, learning, and performing. My goal was to put together a showcase to show my work, but that changed once I started the mini-course. I changed my plans and decided to have the participants write a short reflection on their time with me. I taught them two short dances and taught them two different stretching techniques that they could use in the future. Learning all of that taught the girls to tap into their memory. This also helped wine them down after a long day at school. In the end, some of the girls sent their reflection and it was amazing for me to see what I have done for them.
