LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognise the benefits of working collaboratively.

Bright lights, big smiles, breathing deep. Final bow. Music dies. Lights cut.

Sweaty hands, tense shoulders, tight breaths. Next dance. Our turn. My turn.

I can’t do this.

I can’t do this.

I can’t do this.

I don’t know how to dance. I will fall. I will forget it midway through.

I’m going to step on my skirt, someone’s foot, my earring will fall.

I can’t do this.

I can’t do this.

I can’t do this.

“Yes, you can”

I can’t do this.

I can’t do this.

I can’t do this.

“Yes, you can!” Anisha told me, kept telling me. “Yes, you can!”

Hand on my shoulder, empathising smile, courageous stance.

“You’re going to be great, I’m right here just relax!”

By stepping on the wooden floor of the Main Hall, in front of millions of pairs of hungry parental eyes I took a risk. I have pretty terrible stage fright. But I signed up. Learned the moves. Practised the dance. And now this was the last step. There is no way I would have walked on stage for our Kahaani dance if it wasn’t for her or anyone else in our group. It was an incredible experience which truly demonstrated the importance of teamwork, encouragement and support.
