Stengths and weaknesses

My Strengths and Improvements???...

My improvements...
I need to improve on my focus and structure to  my dance and then i can lose all that by getting distracted. What i need to do to make myself stronger is block all of that out. Physically my weakness is my strength meaning i have flexibility but i can't hold it so i need to work on my core strength and work hard so i become immune to it.

My strengths...
My strengths is that i have flexibility and that i have good choreography. I am good at improvising and picking up things really quickly.

My Inspiration....

The person who has inspired me the most in dance has to be my dance teachers as have grown up around them and their dance style/technique that i love doing and would love to continue doing in my career. This is because they pushed me hard to be how I am today and their influences have been passed on to me. 

As for celebrity inspiration it must Beyonce Knowles because from a little girl I have watched her videos and even tried to copy her routines!!!! She has amazing performing presence and stands out against the other performers.

My experience so far...

My Experience So Far...

Hi my name is Isabel Wilkinson i am 14 years old an i am in year 10. I have been dancing from the age of 3 at Italia Conti Associates Chislehurst. i have perfomed on West End stages e.g. Her Majesty's theatre, Picadilly theartre, Ashcroft theartre, Stag theartre and more.

In 2011 i choreogrphed dances for a Pantomime 'Nursery Rhyme Land' for St John's church in Crystal Palace/Anerley. I had to teach to a group of 3-5 year olds and some 12 year olds and my experience of it really opened my eyes on teaching wise!!!!!

I have also worked with BADS (Beckenham Amateur Dramatics Society). They asked me to choreograph and perform a tap routine and a contemporary dance. It was to raise money for St George's Church Beckenham.

My most recent dance show/piece i did was St George's Church Pantomime 'Sinbad The Sailor' (2012) which i usually act in but i just performed and choreographed two pieces 'Spirit of the Desert and Spirit of the Sea' which was two contrast in dances from a belly dance style to flowy and more contemporary. I had to choose my own music and i chose for my sea dance 'Kenny G's-My Heart Will Go On (instrumenntal) and for my desert dance it was a zumba type song.

In 2012 i took my GCSE Dance course two years early at Italia Conti Chislehurst and i got a 'B' which i was very please with.

I am now currently studying dance at the Brit School for Performing Arts and Technology but this time it is a B-TEC and we study mainly contemporary and jazz. There is a show coming up soon that the year 10's are performing in (it's mainly the year 11's show that years 10's have a piece in it) the show is called 'The Anything Box'. Can't wait to perform our very first show/piece at the Brit School.
