What are you going to accomplish? Be specific.


We are going to choreograph and perform Impossible from Cinderella.
We plan to have our dance moves correlate with the lyrics we are
memorizing and singing. We will project when singing a cappella. We
plan to block our choreography in different positions so we make the
number more interesting. Our objective is to use teamwork and creative
thinking to perform a solid number with our own motivation to practice
the dance moves and be off-book for the lyrics.
How will you know you are ready to perform?
We will know once our choreography is solidified and we arent
struggling to figure out the next phrases in our lyrics. We need a full
energy tank ready and laser-beams shooting out of our arms:). We
need to all be singing on the same pitch in unison so there arent any
notes that sound out of tune.
What are the challenges you will face in meeting your goal?
Our big challenge was coming up with dance moves that everyone
agreed on. We were stuck on some parts that put our agenda on hold, so
we decided to take a break and think of something unexpectedly. Also, a
difficulty for some of us was mustering the courage to perform in front
of our class because of the judgements that could be received by
classmates.
What skills, concepts, and vocabulary will you apply in working towards
your performance?

We will apply teamwork and listening to others ideas. We will insert all
of our prior knowledge on tips that help us memorize lyrics and
choreography. We will stop marking dances and go full out with care
about what we are talking about when singing.

What elements of this experience are transferrable to the real world?


Working with others, compromising and listening to others input to
further enhance any work. Being a leader and taking certain portions of
the job to take action on and being a part of a group to as a whole look
well-rehearsed and enjoyable.
What is your timeline to become performance-ready?
Day 1: Learning the lyrics to the first verse and coming up with a few
possible dance moves
Day 2: Memorized the first verse and almost accomplished half the
choreo to that verse.
Day 3: Finished the choreo to the first verse and began brainstorming for
the second verse.
Day 4: Choreographed all of the second verse with words memorized
because the lyrics are the same, just replacing impossible with its
possible.
Day 5: Solidifying choreo, energy and expressions when articulating
lyrics. We then performed!!!

Select, organize, and document musical ideas for
arrangements, songs, and compositions within
expanded forms that demonstrate tension and

balanced the blocking with singing,
but we could have added more
variety.

Cr2.1.8.b
Use standard and/or iconic notation and/or audio/
video recording to document personal rhythmic

when singing it, but we could have
added some more embellishments
such as harmony and a
background.

Cr3.1.8.b
Describe the rationale for refining works by
explaining the choices, based on evaluation
criteria.

4- We refined our work by


adjusting things that our entire
group was comfortable and
capable of doing. For example, if
there was a piece of choreography
that someone didnt feel right
doing, we would alter it and have
them come up with something
different.

composition, song, or arrangement, using
craftsmanship and originality to demonstrate the
application of compositional techniques for

feeling within the words were were

know that we needed more time
before we were ready to perform.

Perform the music with technical accuracy, stylistic
expression, and culturally authentic practices in
music to convey the creators intent.

3- We had great technical accuracy

Demonstrate performance decorum (such as
stage presence, attire, and behavior) and
audience etiquette appropriate for venue, purpose,
context, and style.

evaluate musical works or performances.

relate to personal choices and intent when

number that showed our skills in
choreographing and singing with
the correct rhythms to make our
number more believable.
