Our dance is supervised by Malika, Shrishti and Poorvi. Within the first 3 weeks of Kahaani practice, I have noticed multiple strengths and weaknesses, and skills I would need to develop (other than my dancing skills) (LO 1, LO 2, LO 5).
• Communication- Communication for our dance is very important, not only between dancing partners but also as a large group. During training, I found it very hard (as well as many of my peers) to keep up with the steps, as we had little to no dancing experiences. Communication with our dance leaders and others helps us learn and keep up with the training whenever we are lost. Communication also takes part whenever the dance leaders are teaching to the whole group. Since our group consists of 20+ people compared to 3 dance leaders, I often found it very hard to listen to and keep concentrated on the steps the dance leaders teach.
• Collaboration- Collaboration was really important to work efficiently as a team. Most importantly, we had needed to collaborate with our dance partners. I often found that my partner and I would not be synchronised. We need to strengthen our collaboration and communication in order to dance well.
