Dance Class Reflection
Over the course of the semester, I have learned about different types of dances including hip hop, dance hall, and contemporary, Bhangra, street jazz, Latin, zumba and more.

I found that since we were limited to equipment like, getting hooked up to the internet to watch dance videos, we were unable to really extend our knowledge in dance which was unfortunate.
I believed I did pretty well over the course. I didn’t want to slack in the course to be honest. I felt like I was influenced by other classmates and I guess I should have stopped it
