We had 5 girls in my level, sadly most my friends were in the higher level (hey they are all MULTIPLE years older than me.) Anyway, we had Modern, Composition,  and Improvisation today. Modern was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to easy. None of the other kids in my level have taken modern, and I have had three years. Comp\Improv was A-W-S-O-M-E!!!!!!!!!!

What we did today, was we each had to write about something or an event that made us happy, sad, or angry. Mine was about meeting Jesus. Then we had to circle the three most powerful words in our story (mine were believe, revived, and loved), and come up with a movement for each of them. After that, our teacher helped us put our movements together to make an amazing piece (which we'll finish tomorrow.)

 The way we put them together, was we started in a huge circle, and we all walked into a clump saying "Who, What, Where, When, Why, How." Then we all said our first word at the same time and did our movement. Next we said our second word while doing the movement. For our third word, we each were given a number, and when she called our number, we said our third word and did our last movement.

IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL! I can't wait to work on it again tomorrow!


  1. Wow! That sounds fun! I really like the idea of making a movement out of words. It seems a bit hard though. We did something similar once.

    I'm just full of stories but...

    Around Christmas time, we had to dance out a holiday song with a friend. It was fun! We had to try to have other girls guess what song we chose :)

    Keep blogging!!


  2. That does sound hard! (and fun!)


Please leave a comment! I really appreciate it! Have a great day!
