Student Profile

Tai S.

Tai, Dance Student

“Tai has a seriously studious approach to dance, and just about anything. The class routines and guidelines are very important to her and she tries to encourage her peers to see the benefit of following them. Before class begins Tai shares with me that she hopes the group can get through all of the planned activities so that they can earn a star (the group earns a prize every time they earn 5 stars). Tai learns choreography very quickly, because she is able to stay very focused despite surrounding distractions, but she isn’t satisfied with her own successes. If she notices a classmate is struggling with something she does well, she offers them her help. In fact, her recent friendship with another student has encouraged a positive adjustment in his own behavior.”
