Dreams of future


Welcome on our site!


A dancer is a person, who dances well and earns money through dancing. To become a good dancer you need to work much from childhood. Some people enter the institute and get education. Then they begin working as dancers. Dancers have much to do. They make groups, train them and take part in different shows and concerts. Besides, they organize dancing parties in other towns. They also record music for those who are fond of dancing. Real dancer must know all dancing styles. f.ex. jump-style, techtonic, robot, free-style, break and others. He must improve his skill every day.

I want to be a dance teacher when I grow up. I think that dancers’ clothes would stay the same,  only there will be different colours and different kinds of slogans. Dancer’s will have different  shoes maybe, that will help them spring off or do a leap and help them not slip. They will have bigger dance rooms and maybe some new studios and a lot more room to move around, because there isn’t very much space in the rooms. I hope in the future there will be combined kicks jumps and everything else. My favourite kick is the flick, and my favourite jump is the cat leap.
Ashley's Future Dancer

In the future we will have shoes that will make you jump higher so you flip on a point. The shoes will also help you balance. The soles have a sticky back so it will grab . You can remove these when you don't need them. You will have special gloves. They have a sticky back so they will help you grab the ground. You may flip much better and your costume will help you do the routine. If you forget your part, then you whisper, "Help," and it goes to a mini-chip and helps you do it now. Wow! Look at what you are doing - you are dancing!
