This is a piece I have written for my Gold Arts Award, exploring whether the arts should be included within the curriculum.

Overall I felt that this was a really good argument and I enjoyed reading your opinion. I felt that maybe you should have looked at a few more statistics as I only really saw one paragraph of one statistic and I also feel you should have analysed your primary research as you only stated what they have said.
As a dancer you do not need to be emotional but when performing there is always a meaning behind the movement you do. most of the time when I am performing of choreographing I really do tap into my underlying emotions as I feel this really helps me perform at the best of my ability.
I really agree with these points you have made especially the one where you said about putting your emotions into your piece and getting criticised can be hard hitting but as we do grow up we learn to use this as constructive feedback and improve from these comments. There was one where you stated that 'If I dance with confidence I will look full of myself'. This is a point that I have experienced myself. I really enjoyed dance but I was always shy when performing as I didn't want to come across full of myself. in the recent years I have learnt that no one will judge you for being you and you just need to perform the best of your ability.
Overall this is a really good article and states some very valid points.
I totally agree with all of these points you make. when looking at the average ballet dancer they all seem to be slim and there is never really a diversity of body shapes. These types of industries usually look for a certain type of person based on their looks and if they are too small, too chubby, not the right face shape, they will not get the job for being who they are.
